TC Annual Diaper Drive

TC Annual Diaper Drive

TC Diaper Drive’s co-chair, Jacob Gruber, explains the impetus behind the tremendous success of this year’s outreach to needy families: “A donation of this size could not have been possible without the generosity and creativity of all the men here, alongside so many graces from God. Having begun only days after the March for Life, I believe that this drive is a continued reflection of the pro-life spirit at the house. As trials and challenges mount for so many young families nowadays, TC is always searching for ways to express solidarity and compassion in more and more meaningful ways. Each diaper donated comes with our prayers for a better life for all the families who will benefit.”
