GFF grantee Twice as Nice Mother and Child was recently highlighted in a Patch online article, “Twice as Nice Mother and Child Distributes Millionth Diaper,” for distributing its millionth diaper during a mobile diaper distribution in Highwood. The mobile program, which is just 13 months old, is on track to hit half a million diapers in 2019. Distributions from it take place monthly in Waukegan and Gurnee, and twice monthly in Highwood.
Twice and Nice Mother and Child provides basic needs assistance to families regardless of income or circumstance through local social service agencies and nonprofit organizations. The goal is to help disadvantaged families with what they need to get back on their feet. The organization helps more than 400 children a month. Twice as Nice also provides other childcare necessities, maternity wear, children’s clothing, baby gear and children’s books.
