The Diaper Drive, which begins this Sunday, October 19th, will benefit DenUM and Bienvenidos. As winter approaches, our local food and staples pantries, need more than just food. Highlands United Methodist church organizes an annual diaper drive with the help of the Highlands Square Community. Diapers, especially the larger sizes are always in demand.
