For the month of May, the Grand Foundation is honored to feature the Keeping Families Covered. This organization provides diapers and other basic needs to families and raises awareness about diaper needs and period poverty in Lake County.
Parenting is challenging, but it is even more difficult when you lack the necessities. Keeping Families Covered believe that every parent should be able to provide their children with the basics they need to thrive. They have fostered partnerships with over 30 social service agencies and now provide help to over 1,800 children each month, and counting.
Their mobile pantry also visits 4 locations in Lake County to distribute free diapers and period supplies to families who are struggling to afford them.
If you are interested in helping, Keeping Families Covered offers a variety of ways for you to assist under-resourced families in Lake County. By donating goods, time or money, not only do families in need benefit, but donors do as well.
