CoxHealth holds Diaper Drive to benefit area agencies

This is the second year for the event; organizers hope to collect 10,000 diapers

Every year, many local babies are born to families who cannot afford necessities for their child, including diapers. March 1-29, CoxHealth in Springfield, Branson and Monett will hold a Diaper Drive to collect this, the most basic and necessary of infant supplies.
