94.3 The Point
It’s been a tough year due to the pandemic for everyone for a number of different reasons, including expecting and new moms who are trying to keep up with payments at home and afford the necessities for their babies like diapers and wipes.
Monmouth County Commissioner Sue Kiley has been working to help address this issue and saw the recent Diaper Drive to help support moms and children during a great time of need.
She oversees the Monmouth ACTS initiative, which helps county residents with a variety of needs.
They’ve released a statement announcing the results of the diaper drive and why it was so needed.
“It was such a specific need, it really struck me,” Kiley said in a statement. “The need was compounded not just by the lack of supplies, but because diapers and wipes can be so expensive, especially for a young mother who is struggling to pay the bills.”
