Students load trucks full of diapers for families in need

FRESNO, Calif.

WHAT: Students from St. Anthony's School will load thousands of diapers they've collected for the Saint Agnes Women's Club 14th annual Diaper Drive.

DETAILS: St. Anthony's School is lending a helping hand in the Saint Agnes Women's Club annual Diaper Drive. Students have collected thousands of diapers over the past week - providing a big boost for the annual 30-day Diaper Drive, which officially starts April 29 and ends May 29.

The goal of Diaper Drive is to collect 30,000 diapers and $30,000 in 30 days to benefit Saint Agnes Holy Cross Center for Women in downtown Fresno. During the Drive, various businesses around town will collect dollars or diapers.
