Being a new parent is hard. I have a four month old son, and just doing the basics of keeping him happy and healthy every day is hard enough, I can't imagine having to do it without a community of help and resources.

Thankfully, the city of Holland knows that not every parent is as lucky and sometimes we can all use a hand up. That's why for this month, they're asking your help for a very important drive.

In a heartwarming initiative aimed at supporting families in need, the City of Holland has teamed up with Nestlings Diaper Bank to launch a city-wide diaper drive. Their goal is to gather an assortment of unused diapers and baby wipes to provide essential support to families across Ottawa and Allegan counties.
