For low income Oconee families, an urgent need

April 28, 2014

Oconeeans are being asked to help needy families in their community meet what’s considered an urgent and important need. You can help by donating diapers and wipes the week of May 5. Oconee families screened by the United Way for Medicaid eligibility receive one package a month unless there is an extreme health need. But one in every three mothers finds it difficult to provide diapers for their children. Food Stamps may not be used to buy cleaning or paper products. Cloth diapers are considered impractical because low income families don’t always have washers and dryers and often don’t have transportation to get to Laundromats. The drop-off for this year’s drive is the United Way office in downtown Seneca—from 9 a-m to 4 p-m Monday, May 5 through Friday, May 9.
