The Mom's Club of Charlottesville held their 3rd annual Diaper Drive in front of the Kroger at Rio Hill in Albemarle County Saturday morning.

They were collecting diapers and wipes of all sizes.

This year the diapers are going to the Jefferson Area CHIP, Children's Health Improvement Program and the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank to help a few families in need.

“It's important to help other moms in our community and so we like to work with these two organizations that do just that,” says Natalie Vandenabeele, president of the Mom’s Club.

“People donate food items all the time, but diapers and wipes are things that they take as well,” says Megan Ice, vice president of the Mom’s club. “They take these types of goods that people in our area need and diapers are expensive.”

The club also held a bake sale to raise money for diapers and wipes. Each year the diaper drive raises more than 6,000 diapers for mothers in need.
