MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The 23rd Annual Marquette County Community Baby Shower is a month away, and one group is preparing. The Marquette Area Mothers of Preschoolers, or MOPS are collecting packages of diapers to be donated at the baby shower. The group started collecting the diapers during their regular monthly meeting Thursday night. They say the idea arose after hearing from the baby shower planners of a need for diapers in the community.
“They were looking for churches or organizations to start a diaper drive for them to give donations,” said Valerie Beaudoin, a member of MOPS. “I said hey, we're a group of moms, what a great way to help out other moms in the area.”
