Diapers Desperately Needed To Meet Requests From Partner Agencies; McMurry employees filled St. Mary’s Truck With Diapers on Friday, July 9
Responding to an important and expensive need for struggling families this summer, McMurry, a marketing communications firm, collected 21,888 diapers during a month-long, company-wide diaper drive to benefit the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance Diaper program.
McMurry’s employees embraced the challenge of meeting the need in friendly but competitive fashion – working to fill the office of CEO Chris McMurry with diapers with the winning team earning a breakfast with McMurry for their efforts. In an age where “designer diapers” are all the rage, many families struggling with food insecurity and choosing between food and things like rent and utilities can’t afford a regular change of diapers that can cost as much as $100 a month.
On Friday, July 9 at 11 a.m. McMurry employees formed a “human chain” at their offices (1010 E. Missouri Avenue) and transfered the diapers from the CEO’s office to a St. Mary’s delivery truck for the trip to the Dell E. Webb Distribution Center.
What an amazing effort pulled together by this local business, we are very grateful for their hard work and support! Way to go McMurry and team!
