CoxHealth holding diaper drive to benefit Newborns in Need

Every year, many local babies are born to families who cannot afford newborn necessities, including diapers. The Newborns in Need program works through local agencies and hospitals to provide these infants with the items they need, free of charge. 

April 1 – 20, CoxHealth and the CoxHealth Foundation are holding a diaper drive to benefit the Newborns in Need Diaper Bank. Disposable and cloth diapers in sizes newborn – six will be collected at all three CoxHealth Springfield Hospitals, with a goal of collecting 1,000 packages to help local children and families in need. 

Collection bins are located: 

· The Women’s Center inside the CoxHealth Turner Center, 1000 E. Primrose 
· Cox South main lobby (North Entrance), and West Pavilion entrance, 3801 S. National 
· Human Resources inside Cox North, 1423 N. Jefferson 
· Administration Office inside Cox Walnut Lawn, 1000 E. Walnut Lawn
