VPFW and Villa Advocacy Group encourage local moms to donate spare formula, diapers, and wipes at any VPFW location by November 11 or come out to the Drive & Giveaway at VPFW’s Prince George office on November 15.
They say it takes a village, and VPFW and Villa Advocacy Group are here to help! The Formula, Mama and Baby Supplies Drive & Giveaway we held at VPFW Koger Center in August was so successful that we are holding a similar event at VPFW’s Prince George office on November 15th. In order to help moms who are looking for specific types of formula and/or need diapers and wipes, we’ll collect those items leading up to and during the Drive & Giveaway on Nov. 15. We invite families who are expecting or have little ones to to stop by the event to donate any spare items they have and/or take what they need.
