In conjunction with National Child Abuse Prevention Month and National Week of the Young Child (April 6-12), the St. Thomas Child Development Center community is reaching out to the children in crisis served by Project Baby Bottoms, a local project dedicated to providing diapers and wipes to low-income areas and families.

The Child Development Center is accepting donations of new disposable diapers (all sizes) and diaper wipes. Cribs designated for donations will be set up at two locations on the university’s St. Paul campus:

  • Campus Way, second floor of the Anderson Student Center
  • Child Development Center, northwest corner of Grand Avenue and Finn Street

Donations will be accepted from Monday, April 7, through noon Friday, April 11.

The generosity of the campus community in previous years has helped designated organizations in their efforts to supply needy families with these materials. The CDC staff thanks the campus community for its continued support in outreach to those in need.
