WCU Community Mental Health Services & United Way of Chester County Coordinate Holiday Diaper Drive to Benefit Families & Children of Chester County
Inspired by a season of giving where neighbors make all the difference, West Chester University (WCU) Community Mental Health Services (CMHS) has partnered with United Way of Chester County to host a Holiday Diaper Drive now through December 17. Members of the community are asked to donate diapers to children and families in need in Chester County, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., at designated collection sites on the campus of West Chester University.
“The mission of the WCU Community Mental Health Services center is to improve access to quality mental health care for all individuals who need it,” says coordinator of the Holiday Diaper Drive Rosa Boniface, a current graduate student in the University’s Doctor of Psychology Program in Clinical Psychology. “It has been a long, stressful year and WCU-CMHS hopes to give back to the community and support those we serve in the way they need it most. United Way of Chester County shares our mission of community empowerment and is helping us make an intentional difference in our community. All diapers donated will go directly to children and families in need in Chester County. We hope many will help us make this holiday season much brighter for those neighbors who need it most.”
