Diaper and Supply Drive for ‘Our Closet’

diapers formula foster care

Let It Be Us is hosting a Diaper and Supply Drive for ‘Our Closet.’  Children usually come into foster care with absolutely nothing and, while the caseworkers work to find a home for them, the children are hungry and tired.  Let It Be Us fills ‘Our Closet’ in the Waukegan DCFS office, with the help of donations to comfort the children and give them something to eat.  Join us on Wednesday, September 16, 11:00am – 2:00pm and drop off your donations at the back door of Barrington’s White House, 145 West Main Street, Barrington, Illinois 60010.  Donations requested are:

Diapers of all sizes
Baby bottles – plastic
Cans of powdered formula – smallest size
Healthy nonperishable snacks
Healthy juice boxes
Warm sleeper pajamas for little ones up to age 4
Warm undershirts for little ones up to age 4

Thank you in advance to everyone who will donate to ‘Our Closet.’  Many hands make light work and together we can care for these children. Questions may be directed to Jeri Bark at jeribark@letitbeus.org.
