The City of Albuquerque’s Department of Family and Community Services and Lovelace Medical Group have joined forces to help families in need. From May 6th – June 2nd, the partnership is hosting a Diaper Drive in support of the City’s Emergency Diaper Program.

The Department of Family and Community Services’ Division of Health and Social Services provides diapers to families in need through its Emergency Diaper program. Last year, the program provided 3,432 diapers to approximately 105 families. Recognizing a need in the community to expand and support the City’s work, Lovelace Medical Group has helped launch a marketing and collection partnership to help expand the program to even more families.

“One Albuquerque is about bringing people together to support one another—the diaper drive goes to the heart of that idea,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “Anyone who has been a parent remembers the stress and exhaustion of those early months, and for new parents in our community who are struggling, a little help with the basic supplies can go a long way.”

Donations will be collected at each of the City’s 22 Community Centers, the 4 Health and Social Service Centers, and Lovelace Women’s Hospital. For a complete list of drop off locations visit www.cabq.gov/family.

Diapers are distributed to families in need at the four City of Albuquerque Health & Social Service Centers: John Marshall, Alamosa, Los Griegos, and East Central. Addresses and contact information for each center are available at: https://www.cabq.gov/help/diapers.

“Lovelace Women’s Hospital is committed to the care of women, and that includes helping the families of little ones who are in need,” said Sheri Milone, Lovelace Women’s Hospital CEO. “We are very proud to partner with the City of Albuquerque to support our local community and our mothers.”
