Diapers distributed to families in need
Families in need received free diapers during an event Wednesday at the Warren-Newport Public Library in Gurnee.
The Twice as Nice Mother & Child Mobile Diaper Pantry provided free disposable diapers during the two-hour event. Volunteer Jackie Leavenworth said 1,250 children are registered in the program, and about 270 families receive diapers on distribution days.
The organization holds four distributions a month at three different locations. Participants are required to present identification and a birth corticate for the child.
