For the launch of The Catalyst, our first mission project was a diaper collection for mothers in need in the city of Syracuse. Many of our mission collections are given to Brown Memorial UMC on the Westside, and this one especially hit close to that area.
Within a 1 mile radius of Brown, there are over 1170 single mothers, many with a very limited income and multiple children
These mothers struggle to feed, clothe, and diaper their children every day. Our goal was to collect as many diapers as possible to help as many women as we could for a few days.
In the end, our collection totaled 1,061 diapers.
