May 2024 Diaper Delivery

Through May 8th: Citywide Diaper Drive Collection

May 11th: Diaper Distribution

One in three families struggles to afford diapers, making it even harder for them to buy food and other necessities. Last year we were able to provide diapers to over 200 families and we hope to support even more this year. This is the FINAL WEEK to donate diapers – help us make sure we can give each family a generous supply!

  • Purchase diapers from the NN Amazon wishlist (https://tinyurl.com/nndiaperdrive2024

  • Diapers will be shipped directly to a connection point

  • Drop off diapers at FamilyACCESS of Newton, 492 Waltham St, West Newton

  • Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 6:00pm

  • Drop off diapers at American Legion Nonantum Post 440, 295 California St, Nonantum

  • 7 days a week, 9:00am–6:00pm


Does your family need diapers? 

Pick up free diapers at Family ACCESS of Newton or American Legion Nonantum Post 440 on Saturday, May 11 from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. No ID or registration is required.



CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS: FOOD PANTRY DELIVERY

We are looking for volunteers who can help deliver groceries from our local food pantries to our neighbors who are unable to get to the pantries on their own.

Our schedule is:

  • Tuesdays from Centre Street Food Pantry. Pickup at 12 or 12:15 before the pantry opens to the public.

  • Wednesdays from Newton Food Pantry. Scheduled pickups between 12:15 - 2:45.

It usually takes about an hour of your time and makes a big difference to so many in our community!
