The Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society is looking to help residents meet their basic needs with an on-going diaper drive.

The Drive was sparked by resident, Edith Loewen, who asked the society what they needed.

It has been underway for two months now and wraps up on Wednesday.

The society says a drive like this helps residents in the community have basic needs that may sometimes seem unaffordable.

“A lot of our clients that we get at the Women’s resource society are, that’s what they’re trying to meet. They’re trying to meet their bottom line basic human needs. And if anything we can do to help them with that, if we can help meet their basic needs then they can, you know, then they’re free to work on themselves, and their lives, and they, you know, they know that the bottom line that their needs are going to be met,” said Jen Pimm, Vice President.

The organization says they appreciate the donations and support from the community.

“Fort St. John has been incredible. They – everyone in this community, if they can, they will. If they’re able to help, they will. And I love that about our community, it's – everyone that can give back, usually does and they really stepped up to the challenge and were – we’ve seen a great response to the diaper drive, and we’re so, so, so excited and grateful,” said Pimm.

Toddler and adult diapers will be accepted, and donations can be dropped off at the Fort St. John RBC or Century 21 on 100th avenue.
