A few of the Middle School students who brought in diapers and wipes to donate to Hour Children.
Hour Children Daycare Center in Long Island City will once again be the recipient of a bus load of diapers and baby wipes urgently needed by the children and families supported by the center. The special delivery will happen thanks to the students at Bay Ridge Prep’s Lower and Middle Schools.
Hour Children is an organization that cares for children of incarcerated mothers and the daycare center relies heavily on donations to help transform the lives of these families. The Lower and Middle School has collected diapers, baby wipes and other items desperately needed by the local group each year. A group of students will soon take a special the center to deliver the goods and also spend time with the babies and toddlers under the care of Hour Children.
Hour Children serves dozens of children who range in age from 3 days to 4 years old. If you would like to help, you can order child care supplies online and ship them directly to the center at 36-11 12th Street, Long Island City, NY 11106.
