Caring & Sharing of South Walton and Walton County Sheriff’s Office Hold Diaper Drive

National Diaper Need Awareness Week, September 18-24th Caring & Sharing along with the Walton County Sheriff’s Office will hold its Second Annual Diaper Drive, sponsored by Specialty Roofers, from September 18 – October 6th. Their goal is to collect a six-month supply of diapers for the community in recognition of National Diaper Need Awareness Week. “We currently provide over 100 local families with diapers and wipes each month while they are picking up food from our food pantry,” said Caring & Sharing Executive Director, Carly Barnes. “The requests for diapers and wipes often exceed our supplies. Our Annual Diaper Drive helps us engage our generous community to increase the amount of diapers and wipes we have on hand and ultimately help us better serve our clients.” Here’s how the community can help Caring and Sharing achieve this year’s goal: First, Walton County Sheriff’s Office will participate by hosting their own “Pack the Patrol Car” as they invite the community to donate and drop off diapers (sizes 4, 5 and 6 most needed) between September 18-24th at their administrative office on 133 Sheriff Drive in Santa Rosa Beach. Next, diapers can be dropped off at Caring & Sharing and other participating locations during the same time frame. Participating drop off locations include: Specialty Roofers, Palm Folly, La Luna Children’s Boutique, Christ the King Episcopal Church, The Tree House Episcopal Montessori School, Point Washington United Methodist Church and Preschool, South Walton Seahawks, The Rosemary Beach Foundation and Rosemary Beach Cottage Rental Agency....
