4th Annual Diaper Drive

It's that time again! Come down to the SAC Plaza on Cabrillo's Aptos campus on Halloween from 10:00 to 2:00!

SRSN will be gathering new disposable diapers and wipes for Cabrillo families/students in need this Halloween. After all there is nothing scarier than diapers! We recognize that many of the support mechanisms available to families in need may not be used to purchase diapers; and even though students are awarded Federal Financial Aid there is still an unmet need. In order to help families stretch their dollars, we hold this annual Diaper Drive and maintain a diaper closet.

Please join us for Refreshments and Entertainment, all for a great cause!
