Continuing support of Houston Strong, Iowa Wesleyan University Nursing Students are conducting a Diaper Drive for Houston families on Friday, Sept. 8 from 2pm-8pm at the Fort Madison Hy-Vee.
Beginning at 10 am on Sept 9th, the Hy-Vee Drug Store on the square in Mount Pleasant will gather donations until 8 pm. The Mount Pleasant Hy-Vee Drug Store will also collect diapers, wipes, and adult depends during business hours Sept 8th- 13th.
If unable to donate in person, a virtual diaper donation site has been created and will connect directly to the Texas Diaper Bank (Galveston) Amazon Wishlist. Please visit Amazon Diaper Purchase to make a virtual donation.
Due to a depletion of blood in the Houston area, a Blood Drive will be held in the J. Raymond Chadwick Library on Iowa Wesleyan’s Campus in the International Room. The Drive begins on September 7 at 10:30 am and will run until 2:30 pm. There is a commitment from the nursing department to continue the drive after 2:30 pm if people are willing to give as the need is great for Houston.
The Nursing Students at Iowa Wesleyan University are grateful for your support.
