Sometimes items that many take for granted with babies can be a great financial burden on some families. That is why a local organization is asking for help to keep baby butts dry on the Western Slope.

The Hope of the Grand Valley is a group of people working to help those hard working families that do not qualify for any type of aid. The motto "A hand up, not a handout" really shows their mission.

The Hope of the Grand Valley found there to be a need helping some families with baby basics like diapers. The have teamed up The Diaper Depot in an ongoing drive to keep babies dry, which any parent will tell you is a necessary goal. They are currently helping about fifty families with diapers.

HOGV is asking for donations of Huggies, Pampers or Loves brand diapers. The reason for this specific request is they feel these brand work better at keeping babies drier and more comfortable when they are in them for a longer time period. All sizes of diapers are needed from newborn to size six.

There are three locations that are accepting donations of diapers in the Grand Valley:
