Companions in Christ,
The Deacons of ECCT would like to offer words of gratitude to all who participated in the ECCT Christmas/Epiphany Diaper Drive.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted (Isaiah 6:1)
Your generosity in purchasing diapers and/or providing financial donations to The Diaper Bank of Connecticut has made a positive impact on those who have found it difficult to buy both food and diapers. This generosity has brought good news to the afflicted and binds up those who are brokenhearted.
During this time of pandemic, the need for assistance has been overwhelming. Jesus calls us to love our neighbors and you have shown that love. Please see our collage of diapers from some of the collection hubs.
While our diaper drive is over, the needs continue. If you missed this opportunity to contribute and wish to make donations, or have a parish Lenten offering, please contact: Jenny Kohl, MSW Community Outreach Coordinator | The Diaper Bank of Connecticut, Inc. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
