An estimated 80 people came out to Nage Restaurant Feb. 6 to donate diapers to support a local safe house in Georgetown, the Gardenia House. The home is run by Sister Rosa Alvarez and other Carmelite sisters. The location is a safe home for single mothers who are employed in the poultry and agriculture business in Sussex County.
The results totaled more than 11,000 diapers that will be donated to the home. The goal of the campaign was to fill a truck provided by Apple Electric, and the drive was a resounding success.
Community leaders presented the diaper drive idea to Nage Catering Director Kathy McDonald, who said, “It was a tremendous outpouring of generosity from all parts of our community. And a great time!”
