City Hosts Diaper Drive for Military Families

The City of Rancho Santa Margarita is seeking donations of diapers in all sizes to help pamper the mommies-to-be of the City’s adopted 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines. There are over 1,000 military families living on base at Camp Pendleton – and we want to let them know that the many sacrifices of both the families and service members are appreciated. Diapers and baby wipes are expensive, costing up to $70 to $80 per month per baby.  On average a baby needs 6 to 10 diapers a day to stay fresh and healthy.  As a community, we would like to show our support to the new and expectant mommies and thank them for the sacrifices they make as a military spouse.

Donations may be dropped off at the Bell Tower Regional Community Center during regular business hours; Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. until  Friday, August 3, 2018.

For more information, please contact Wendi Redington, Community Services Supervisor at (949) 216-9700 x 1260, wredington@cityofrsm.org.
