Help Billings' smallest neighbors  with a diaper on GivingTuesday

A Bilings nonprofit is hosting a drive to help the area's smallest neighbors: Babies.

Family Promise, a group of 26 Billings faith-based congregations, is holding a community diaper drive focused on the most needed sizes, 5 and 6, as part of GivingTuesday.

A global generosity movement, GivingTuesday was created to encourage people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.

Felecia Burg, the development coordinator of Family Promise, says the group gives out about 7,000 diapers a month, and 85% of those are size 5 and 6.

"GivingTuesday and those type of days throughout the year, everyone wants to do something and they want to make sure that what they are doing is meaningful," Burg said. "They are good way for us to communicate with the community of what we need at that time and it's super simple for people to give back."

You can drop off diapers at Family Promise's day center at 10 S. 26th St. Or visit their website: www.familypromsieyv.org

Famliy Promise provides meals, shelter and a safe non-judgmental environment for families who are homeless.
