Edward Jones Financial Advisor Christine Short
encourages giving back by hosting a diaper drive for local children.
The collected diapers will be donated to Community Action
Partnership of Central Illinois (CAPCIL) Head Start Centers located
All brands and sizes of diapers/wipes are welcome, with larger sizes
(size 4-6) encouraged. This is Short’s fourth year hosting the
diaper drive and each year she hopes to collect more than the year
before. Over the last two years, this diaper drive has collected and
donated more than 5,800 units including diapers and wipes to CAPCIL.
“The Early Head Start center-based programs use thousands of diapers
each year. The agency does their best to supply diapers so that
families can focus on working to pull themselves out of poverty.
Diapers are a large expense therefore donations from local
businesses and the communities we serve have allowed us to use grant
dollars on other classrooms needs such as educational materials and
developmentally appropriate toys, said Head Start Director, Jenifer

Diapers can be dropped off at Christine Short’s office located at
515 Broadway Street in Lincoln during regular business hours through November
30, 2020. For additional information please visit CAPCIL’s website (www.capcil.info)
or contact Christine Short’s office at 217-735-2585.
It is the mission of CAPCIL, in partnership with communities in our service
area, to empower persons with low income and the aged by creating and
implementing poverty-fighting initiatives for those in crisis and those that
endeavor a life of lasting independence.
