Family First Pregnancy Care Center

The second annual Pinal Diaper Drive was held April 14- May 11. Here in Oracle we had a great response by two schools.

Mountain Vista Youth Partnership had a penny war and collected $140. These students organized the fundraiser and were awarded by Family First Pregnancy Care Center with a pizza party. Sierra Oaks school had a competition between three groups and Group A won by collecting 115 diapers for the cause. They were awarded with an ice cream party. Pictured are the two groups enjoying their awards. Thank you for participating in this worthy cause. In Pinal county 18% of families with children under age 5 are living in poverty. This is why the Pinal Diaper Drive means so much to the families. 100% of donations collected go towards providing free diapers and wipes to the families of Oracle who are in need. If you are interested in donating call our office at 520-896-9545 or donate on line at www.familyfirstpcc.org. Thank you!
