In 2013, the My Baby and Me Diaper band was started by the Owatonna Hospital Foundation. It's function was to provide diapers for people in need in Steele County.

The annual Diaper Drive is set for Saturday, June 11, in Owatonna. New disposable diapers of all sizes will be accepted, preferably in complete packages. Cash donations will also be welcome.

Diapers may be dropped off at Fareway Foods at 831 Oak Avenue South from 8-10AM. There will be doughnuts and coffee for sale at this event as well.

You also may donate at Cash Wise Foods at 495 West North Street between 10:30AM and 1PM. Root beer floats will be on sale as well.

Each donation receives a coupon for a free ice cream treat.

This diapers are needed by families in poverty or experiencing a crisis where the purchase of diapers is not possible.
