Love the Littles Diaper Drive being held during Valentine’s season
Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church Diaper Closet supports the Merrill community by providing diapers and wipes to families who might need a little extra support. They are asking area residents to help support the littles in our community this Valentine’s season by participating in the Love the Littles Diaper Drive. Donations of new diapers, wipes, or a monetary donation will go to support Our Saviour’s Diaper Closet. The Diaper Closet is especially in need of large size diapers and pull-ups.
“Diapers are a large expense for families. We want to provide this service to those who might need a little help in a confidential, non-judgmental setting,” said Brenda Mueller, Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church Diaper Closet Coordinator.
The Diaper Drive will run from Feb. 10 through Feb. 25, and multiple locations throughout Merrill are accepting the donations. New diapers and wipes may be dropped off normal business hours at:
Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church (300 Logan St.)
Riverside Athletic Club (500 S. Center Ave.)
St. Francis Catholic Church (1708 E. 10th St.)
T.B. Scott Free Library (106 1st St.)
The Chiropractic Wellness Center (109 S. Center St.)
Trinity Lutheran Church (107 N. State St.)
Monetary donations can be mailed to: Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, 300 Logan St. in Merrill. Be sure to indicate the donation is for the Diaper Closet.
Our Saviour’s Diaper Closet is open to the community on the second Tuesday of the month from 3–5 p.m. and the fourth Saturday of the month from 9–11 a.m. There are no income requirements. A variety of diaper sizes and pull-ups are available, including adults, at no cost. One package of diapers or pull-ups per visit; maximum 12 visits per year.
