The 14th Annual Diaper Drive, sponsored by the Zion Lutheran Church, began Mother’s Day and will continue on until Father’s Day. Donations during the drive support Lutherans for Life. A giant “caf” bottle is located at Harvest Foods for donations. The collection will be matched by $300 from Thrivent Choice Funds and it will all be divided between the Support Center in Omak — a crisis center for those in need — and Life Services in Spokane, a teen pregnancy center for young women in crisis pregnancies. The project is a pro-life project to support young women in need of help.
