The Donation is To Honor All that Mothers Have Done During this Past Difficult Year 

May 19, 2021 — (Beaufort, SC): FWDG announced it had made donations of $250 to four area charities in honor of Mothers’ Day to be used for the purchase of diapers. The United Way of the Lowcountry, Radiance Women’s Center, CAPA Beaufort (Child Abuse Prevention Association), and Hopeful Horizons each received a check to support the mothers who receive their support services. 

“The pandemic left many local families balancing work, childcare, and in-person schooling. Those new burdens landed squarely on the shoulders of mothers,” said Larry Mark, Founder and President of FWDG. “We were eager to celebrate Moms this Mother’s Day, since they have served as caregivers, teachers, and earners. Our donations are intended to alleviate one of the more expensive costs for Moms: diapers.” 

Diapers are as vital to a child’s well-being and health just as much as food, shelter, and affection. Lack of access to diapers forces families to leave a child in a soiled diaper longer than appropriate, which can lead to diaper rash and may cause staph and urinary tract infections. FWDG’s donation will help purchase several cases of diapers for vulnerable local families.
