West Palm Beach, Fla. (March 24, 2017) – Moore Communications Group (MCG), a nationally-ranked communications firm, recently hosted a “Bottoms Up” diaper drive in support of the Junior League of Boca Raton’s (JLBR) Diaper Bank. As a fun spin on St. Patrick’s Day, the firm collected nearly 2,000 diapers in support of families who struggle to afford diapers. According to the JLBR’s website, one out of three families struggle to buy diapers, and JLBR’s Diaper Bank is the only diaper bank in Broward and Palm Beach County.
“Helping families in the communities where we live and work is as essential as helping members of our own MCG family,” said Terrie Ard, president of MCG. “We believe that sometimes the smallest gestures can have the biggest influence.”
Diapers are an expensive and reoccurring cost to families with babies and young children – a need that is not supported by Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) programs. A family’s lack of diapers might lead to a much larger problem, including the potential economic impact on the community. For example, when children do not have an adequate supply of diapers, they are unable to attend day care, which may lead to a parent missing work to care for their child.
MCG supports local communities with our corporate responsibility initiative, MCG Impact. Through this program, employees address regional challenges, working with philanthropic organizations to effect change. MCG is committed to supporting projects that benefit a wide variety of people and organizations.
