FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Community Bridge is in need of supplies for its Baby’s Best Chance program and will be hosting its first-ever diaper drive from February 7th to 18th.

Brenda Price with Community Bridge says the program has seen an increase in clients since the pandemic, and the organization is thankful for the response from the community.

“We’ve had so many new clients reaching out and asking us for supply. Right now, we’re just a little low on certain things; a lot of it is diapers and wipes,” Price said

“That’s why we thought we’d reach out because the community has been so great at giving back when we have reached out before.”

Residents can stop by the organization’s office, located across from the post office on 101st Avenue, to drop off donations of unopened boxes of diapers (newborn and sizes 1, 2, and 3) as well as unopened packages of wipes.

Individuals that wish to donate can visit the Community Bridge office located at 10142 101st Avenue, Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Baby’s Best Chance is a free program for pregnant individuals and those who have had a baby in the last six months. It provides a weekly support group, individual support, and education on various topics, such as pregnancy stages, life with a newborn, baby development, nutrition and more.
