Liberty HealthShare Employees Support Canton-Area Diaper Bank
Liberty HealthShare and its employees helped make sure that babies of families experiencing hardship in the Canton area had diapers that their parents might not have been able to afford.
The ministry held a drive to collect diapers for the Heart of Ohio Diaper Bank. Employees donated 4,160 diapers to help families in need.
“Our ministry is based on the biblical principle of supporting one another in times of need,” said Pastor Wes Humble, executive director of ministry, community relations, and events. “While we do that on a daily basis with our members’ healthcare needs, we apply the same principle to those in our own community who are in need of food, clothing, and other essentials for life.”
The Heart of Ohio Diaper Bank serves families in Stark, Carroll, Harrison, and Tuscarawas Counties, which have poverty rates that exceed both the state and national averages.
“Without a supply of diapers, babies cannot participate in childcare,” said Pastor Humble. “And, without childcare,
parents are unable to work to provide for their families.”
