It seems a couple of extra days went a long way for the Community Development Council’s Good Baby Box Diaper Drive.

After coming up just short of the 15,000 diaper goal last week, CDC officials decided to extend the campaign and it paid off.

Program Coordinator Bev Heuving says the extended campaign brought in 17,280 diapers, surpassing the goal by more than 2,200.

The Good Baby Box Program is a cost effective alternative for families to purchase diapers and other baby products.
