I just wanted to send a quick post out to everyone who contributed to our 2nd Because Edmonton Cares Diaper Drive in support of the Edmonton Food Bank.
We had our first company donation of 1,800 diapers which was a huge boost! We also had several people who asked their friends and family for diapers/formula in lieu of gifts at birthday parties; they raised hundreds of diapers and multiple cans of formula.
In just about 3 weeks we donated 5,000 diapers (twice our goal), 36 cans of formula, 14 tins of formula and 24 packages of baby wipes. The Edmonton Food Bank was taken aback at how large our donation was this time; we took up an entire pallet!
So I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who donated. It means so much to me that you took the time to sort through your closets, meet me for a pick-up, or go to the store and buy a donation. You are GREATLY appreciated and are helping to make this city even better.
A job well done Edmonton, a job well done.
