Spring Diaper Drive

May 13 - June 17, 2017 Fairfield and Southport drop off locations

State Representatives Brenda Kupchick and Laura Devlin, in cooperation with Operation Hope, are hosting a diaper drive this spring. Operation Hope never has enough diapers to keep up with demand, and these can be costly for our neighbors in need, especially as diapers are not covered by SNAP benefits. Opened packets and all sizes are accepted. Thank you!

Join us at Saugatuck Sweets in Fairfield on June 17 from 1:00pm-3:00pm to conclude the drive – bring a donation if you can!

These Fairfield and Southport locations are collecting diapers May 13 through June 16:


- A Child’s Garden, 100 Mona Terrace

- Fairfield Public Library, 1080 Old Post Road

- Fairfield Woods Branch Library, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road

- St. Paul’s Nursery School, 661 Old Post Road

- Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Avenue, Southport
