September marks the 12th month that Diaper Depot, a ministry of Zion Lutheran Church in Tamaqua, has been in operation. During that time over 20,000 diapers have been distributed to families in the Tamaqua Area School District. Nearly 500 children have benefited from the program.
Diaper Depot is a pantry associated with the Greater Philadelphia Diaper Bank. The program is open to families in the Tamaqua Area School District. Guidelines and an online request form are available at www.ziontamaqua.com.
