Sister Rosa’s No Babies Wet Behind Diaper Drive has returned, holding a Stuff the Bus with Diapers initiative at Apple Electric on Route 24, Rehoboth Beach.
A Sister Rosa’s Diaper Drive Girls’ Night Out will be held from 5 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 18, at the Summer House in downtown Rehoboth Beach. Attendees are each asked to bring a package of diapers for the effort.
The diaper drive runs through Friday, Feb. 28, benefitting the Sister Rosa Alvarez Women’s Health Program at La Red in Georgetown. The program provides healthcare and services for mothers from around Sussex County.
New this year is Kudos For A Cause with help from Schell Brothers and the Project Kudos Bus. A donation of $1 per Kudos sticker placed on the bus will be donated to the Rosa Health Center.
This annual initiative was created and organized by Lisa Prestipino, owner of Apple Electric. Prestipino said, “Sister Rosa’s No Babies Wet Behind Diaper Drive continues to be a community effort, and we are very thankful to those who continue to return year after year. “This initiative has grown with help from Schell Brothers and Project Kudos. We are grateful for this incredible contribution.”
Sister Rosa Alvarez was a longtime supporter of La Red Health Center’s women’s health program, transporting thousands of women and their children to visit its healthcare providers.
Thousands of diapers have been donated throughout the years by the truckloads. Organizers are Lisa Prestipino; Jennifer Burton, Big Fish Charitable Foundation; Karen Falk, Delmarva development manager for Susan G. Komen Maryland, Kent and Sussex counties; and St. Edmond Roman Catholic Church, Rehoboth Beach. For more information, call Apple Electric at 302-645-5105.
