Cray Eatery & Drinkery
On November 19 the young professionals of LINC came together for an intimate happy hour of cocktails and conversation around a great cause: access to diapers! This is a huge challenge for struggling families with small children as diapers are an expensive, essential item not covered by benefits - and babies can go through 10-12 diapers per day! At the event members of LINC contributed 983 diapers and $235 in monetary donations that allowed us to purchase an additional 1,279 diapers. Guests also enjoyed sliders and free drinks and a representative from Community Shelter Board (CBS) provided remarks on this urgent need for diapers at our local shelters. All 2,262 diapers were delivered to Community Shelter Board's Van Buren Shelter on the west side.
