Home – Blog – In The Community: 2013 Cobb Diaper Day Event Brings in 75,000
October 30, 2013 —
Did you know that food stamps do not cover personal hygiene products like diapers? Can you imagine being forced to choose between feeding your family and buying diapers for your little ones? Cobb Diaper Day collects donations of approximately 50,000 diapers each year for low-income families so that they don’t have to make that choice. Justin O’Dell is one of the founding members of Cobb Diaper Day and was honored to read a proclamation from Governor Sonny Perdue at the first Diaper Day event.
As a member of the 2013 event committee, Justin worked with Founder and Committee Chair, Barbara Hickey, to facilitate the diaper collection that helps ease the burden for hundreds of families. O’Dell & O’Neal Attorneys served as a drop-off location for diaper donations which Justin then transported to the October 28th collection at Glover Park in Marietta. This year’s event resulted in 75,000 diapers being donated for families across Cobb County! Thank you to all who donated and supported Cobb Diaper Day!
