Third annual Diaper Drive by CoxHealth kicks off this month

Every year many babies in the Ozarks are born to families who cannot afford necessities for their child, including diapers. Through March 28 CoxHealth will be collecting diapers for its annual Diaper Drive and is excited that Hy-Vee is joining in to help.

Last year CoxHealth collected more than 15,000 diapers in Springfield, Branson, Monett and Cassville. Donation bins will be available March 28 at the annual Baby Affair, 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in Foster Auditorium at Cox Medical Center South.

Hy-Vee has a collection box at its Springfield location, 1729 W. Battlefield. Donation bins are also located at various locations at these CoxHealth properties, including:

· Cox Medical Center South
  north lobby, West Pavilion, and The Turner Center
· Cox North Hospital in Springfield
  outpatient entrance
· Cox North Fitness Center
· The Meyer Center main lobby
· Ferrell-Duncan Clinic main entrance
· Cox Medical Center Branson
  cafeteria, and Skaggs Foundation office
· Cox Monett Hospital
· CoxHealth Center Cassville

Diapers donated will support the Diaper Bank of the Ozarks in Springfield, Jesus Was Homeless in Branson, Crosslines and the Tri-County Pregnancy Care Center in Monett and the New Mom’s Closet at First Christian Church in Cassville.
