Baptist Health’s Community Outreach team is coordinating a diaper drive to support its services for new and expectant mothers at the Heaven’s Loft and St. John’s Missionary Baptist Church wellness centers, both of which target underserved women in need of assistance.
These two centers, one in North Little Rock and the other in Little Rock, serve more than 2,150 patient visits annually.
Baby wipes and diapers of all sizes are the primary items that are needed. It can cost more than $100 per month for an average amount of diapers needed for one baby, and low-income families cannot take advantage of free or subsidized childcare if they cannot leave an adequate supply of diapers with the provider.
Please consider making a donation at one of the following drop-off points prior to the May 28 deadline:
Baptist Health Community Outreach – 9100 Kanis Road, Little Rock
Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock, Health Management Center, 9601 Interstate 630, Exit 7, Little Rock
Baptist Health Medical Center-North Little Rock, Health Management Center or Community Relations office, 3333 Springhill Dr., North Little Rock
Heaven’s Loft is an incentive program that rewards low-income expectant mothers and parents of young children when they receive prenatal care, well-baby care, immunizations and attend the center’s programs.
Heaven’s Loft, located at 518 W. 26th St. in North Little Rock, is a partnership with the North Little Rock Junior League. You can learn more about Heaven’s Loft here.
The St. John’s Wellness Center is located at St. John’s Missionary Baptist Church at 2501 S. Main St. in Little Rock.
