There is still over a week to participate in the diaper drive for Fulton Public Schools Parents as Teachers.
Diapers and wipes can be dropped off at Fulton Public Schools Central Office on Hornet Drive throughout November.
Parents as Teachers is a program that serves local children from birth until they reach kindergarten. In a normal year, parent educators make home visits, host play groups and share resources with families.
This year, the PAT program has moved online, with one-on-one and group Zoom visits. The program also distributes free books.
The diaper drive will help the program continue to distribute needed supplies with families.
"Parents as Teachers go into the homes of our future Hornets," FPS communications director Karen Snethen said.
Snethen said the goal is to collect as many diapers as the community will give so parent educators have supplies to share.
The drive is being publicized by Bright Futures, an organization in its second year of working with Fulton schools.
"Bright Futures is an organization and the goal is to connect the schools with our community so we are all sharing responsibility for meeting the needs of our kids," Snethen said.
On Facebook, Bright Futures Fulton posts whenever it gets word of a student in need.
"Needs are varied and wide," Snethen said.
In the past, this has included everything from winter clothing to helping a family who lost belongings in a fire.
"It's very heartwarming to see how the community comes together and provides," Snethen said.
Snethen said the Bright Futures program has had many successes. Recently, the program helped provide a child with glasses.
In addition to helping pass our large donations, the goal of Bright Futures when it comes to individual needs is to find a solution and meet the need within 24 hours.
'There are good people willing to do things, they just need to know where to channel it," Snethen said. "There haven't been many things we haven't been able to help with."
