The 7th graders are hosting a diaper/baby item drive through May 16th to support Mater Filius, Nebraska. Mater Filius is a Catholic apostolate created to help women facing unexpected pregnancies who find themselves without support. Mater Filius provides housing, counseling, medical care, emotional, and spiritual support free of charge to the women they serve. They are in most need of diapers at this time, but would also welcome donations of new clothing, blankets, or other baby supplies. Donations are being collected at school and can be placed in the marked boxes outside of your child’s homeroom. Thank you for considering a donation for these women and their children. To learn more about Mater Filius please visit their website at https://www.materfiliusne.org/
