POCATELLO — Southeastern Idaho Public Health will hold a Diaper Drive on Valentine’s Day at the Pocatello Fred Meyer, located at 800 Yellowstone Ave., from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The donated diapers will go to families in need in Southeast Idaho.
Diapers are essential in keeping babies happy and healthy, yet 1 in 3 families in Idaho struggle to afford diapers. Low-income families are forced to choose between diapers and food each month. On average, diapers cost approximately $80 per month and many community support programs such as food stamps or WIC does not cover the cost of diapers.
