Adults with developmental disabilities attending Building Blocks Ministries Community Involvement class have been managing a Diaper Bank at FAITH Neighborhood Center in Groveland with the support of their Community/Classroom Trainer for the last year.

Building Blocks Community Aktion Club with the support of the Kiwanis Club of Clermont and the Kiwanis Club of South Lake complete an annual diaper drive to support the Diaper Bank, yet the need for diapers is not being met. Many weeks when the Community Involvement Class arrives at the Diaper Bank there are no diapers for them to stock or distribute. Wanting to make a difference in the community Building Blocks Ministries worked with members from the Kiwanis Club of Clermont to find new community partners. Executive Director, Paula Whetro, states, “We are so blessed to live in the caring communities of South Lake, people genuinely care and want to help meet the needs of those in our community.” 

Baby and adult diapers of all sizes can now be dropped off at any of these locations: Building Blocks Ministries, 548 S. Highway 27, Suite C, Minneola; Lakeside Church, Minneola location on Sunday mornings before or after service; Mainstreet Community Bank, 515 Highway 50, Clermont; or Wheatly Realty Group, 664 W. Montrose St., Clermont. Please fill the blue bins!
