RAPID CITY, S.D. — Two local nonprofits – the Cornerstone Women and Children’s Home and the Bella Pregnancy Center – obtained a much-needed donation Monday morning.
Black Hills Community Bank has run the annual “Diaper Drive” for the previous 12 years. Collected all through the month of June, donations come from clients, staff and the group.
The stack of packaged diapers goes a great distance in serving to Cornerstone take care of local, economically-challenged households.
“I’d say a donation of this magnitude covers our wants for a 12 months,” stated Mark Harlow, President of the Cornerstone Board of Directors. “Plus, we will now hand diapers out to those that are available in briefly and have this want.”
It wasn’t simply diapers that have been introduced in; Black Hills Community Bank ran fundraisers and partnered with local organizations like The Optimists Club to buy extra diapers.
“We had a silent public sale…on-line public sale that we do in partnership with our Spearfish financial institution, after which we additionally had bake gross sales; we had bingo nights,” says Tiffany Smith, the Vice President of Marketing at Black Hills Community Bank. “We did every little thing we may.”
They’ve been ready to donate greater than half one million diapers within the final 12 years, and Smith says they’re already wanting to subsequent 12 months’s diaper drive.
