Bundled Blessings Diaper Drive- thru December 13
The YLS will be collecting diapers of all sizes to be donated
to Bundled Blessings. Bundled Blessings is an all-volunteer diaper
pantry whose mission is to supply diapers to families in need through
partnerships with local social service agencies in Evanston,

and Children) do not allow for the purchase of diapers. Local agencies
that are supported by Bundled Blessings include Connections for the
Homeless, Family Residential Program and the Infant Welfare Society of
Evanston at Evanston Township High School’s Teen Baby Nursery.
Donations may be dropped off at the CBA building (321 S Plymouth Ct.)
thru December 13. Monetary donations will also be accepted and will go
towards the purchase of diapers. Checks should be made payable to
“First United Methodist Church of Evanston” with
“Bundled Blessings” in the memo. Click
