From New Brunswick City Hall to the State Theater, at Robert Wood Johnson-University Hospital and SilverLine Windows, bright diaper collection boxes were filled with diapers for babies who otherwise could spend a whole day in a single diaper.

Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple spear-headed the drive as part of their on-going efforts to help the community, and Brandeis Women, the Suydam Street Reformed Church, and the South Brunswick Senior Center also supported it.

The diapers will go to low-income families whose annual incomes are below $30,000 a year, no matter what the family size. B-FED (Baby Formula and Emergency Diapers) is a program of the Anshe Emeth Community Development Corporation, a non-profit celebrating its 16th anniversary of providing services to all low-income residents of Middlesex County.

Last year more than 70,000 diapers were distributed to over 600 families (with almost 1,100 children) referred by area agencies. Thanks to all who support this year-round effort. Additional donations (of diapers or funds to purchase them) can be made to the AECDC, 222 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick, NJ, 08901.
