St. Cloud area residents have donated over 100,000 diapers so far this month for "Operation Baby New Year". Organizer Justin Michael says they've now matched the total collected last year, which was the first year of the drive.
Dozens of people came out Wednesday night with diapers in hand for a good cause. The Beaver Island Brewing Company held their "Pints For Pampers" event to help collect donations for the second annual "Operation Baby New Year".
Anywhere between $5.00 and $25.00 is the average price range for a 24 count box of diapers. For many families the price of buying diapers comes down to either putting food on the table or buying diapers, this is where Operation Baby New Year comes in to play.
The Christmas season may be over but the spirit of giving lives on through the dog days of summer. Operation Baby New Year is kicking off their 'Diaper Days of Summer' campaign in an effort to raise 75,000 diapers for local organization.
