The Parenting Place receives large diaper donation from Rotary Club

An estimated 17,000 diapers donated

The La Crosse Rotarty Club donated an estimated 17,000 diapers to the Parenting Place on Thursday.

The donation comes after Peter Krause, a member of the La Crosse Rotary Club, noticed the Parenting Place asking for help as part of a Diaper Drive during the month of July.

The Parenting Place Executive Director, Jodi Widuch, says the large donation will go a long way towards helping parents in need.

“Sometimes families are often in a situation of making decisions about do I spend this little bit of money I have before my next paycheck on diapers or medication or keep saving for rent or food. In our community the resources for food are more plentiful. There really are no resources for diapers.”
