Brentwood Christian Church Holds Diaper Drive

For about six weeks this summer Brentwood Christian Church held a diaper drive to benefit Crosslines (previously reported as Diaper Bank of the Ozarks in error).

Crosslines is an organization of the Council of Churches of the Ozarks which keeps as its focus and goal:
No One Goes Hungry. Ever.
Fighting the War on Poverty. TOGETHER.

For many years, Brentwood CC has been collecting canned food and other non-perishables that volunteers deliver to Crosslines and distribute to families the first Monday of every month. Additionally, they run a toy drive every December for the Christmas-shopping store that Crosslines runs for low-income families. Then periodically, they participate in other supply drives as needed, such as the recent diaper drive. 

Organized by the congregation's Lydia Circle, the drive focused on newborn size diapers, baby wipes, and gently used 100% cotton T-shirts for recycling into cloth diapers. They also collected monetary donations for the purchase of these items. This is the second such drive that the congregation has held to help the parents and families of their community.
