Students collect diapers for babies at Stony Brook Children's Hospital
Students in Suffolk spent part of their weekend collecting diapers for the babies at Stony Brook Children's Hospital.
Half Hallow Hills High School West students spent Sunday morning collecting diapers at the ShopRite store in Commack. The donations will go directly to Stony Brook Medicine's Women, Infant and Children Program.
The program provides food packages and information about nutrition to low-income pregnant women and new mothers.
"It makes us feel great because we see the community helping us out and helping everyone out around here," says student Callie Schatz.
Nearly 600 mothers and more than 650 infants are enrolled in Stony Brook's WIC Program.
