Kids Korner child care is hosting a "Diaper Tree" at their location in the Cheyenne County Community Center. Kids Korner has a tree on the bulletin board with tree decorations defining diaper sizes and related products. People are encouraged to take an ornament and return as many of that size diaper or product as you wish. The diapers will be donated to the Salvation Army on Dec. 21.

Small things impact big things. That is why organizations are working to collect diapers and related products for families in need.

Kids Korner Child Care Center in Sidney has a unique "Christmas Tree" in its facility. It is green, and it is decorated with colorful bulbs, but the bulbs represent smaller needs, or better said needs of small children.

Kids Korner is collecting diapers and related products for families in need. Collected diapers will be donated to the Salvation Army. To support the program, stop by Kids Korner and take a tree ornament. Return with as many packages of the product as you would like donate. All donated products will be taken to the Salvation Army on Friday, Dec. 21.

Brush Salon Collection Point for Freedom Outreach Diaper Drive

Freedom Outreach Church in Sterling, Colo., is hosting a diaper drive for the Sterling Crisis Pregnancy Center and the Baby Bear Hugs program in Logan County.

Not only do they provide services for Sterling, but for families in Cheyenne County who have limited resources for young women who are facing unplanned pregnancies and the stresses associated with pregnancy. The Caring Crisis Pregnancy Center in Sterling is the closest resource center for these women and their families. They address the needs of expecting moms, dads and extended family. The Center connects new mothers and families with community and regional support and resources.


All services are free.

The Baby Bear Hugs program is an organization that helps new families with parent education, resources and support. Their services are also free.

A Diaper Drive is being held in support of the programs and the families they support. Diapers can be dropped off at the Brush Salon, 1907 10th Ave., 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. , through Jan. 8.
