Having raised three children with his wife, Joe is keenly aware of the many challenges facing young parents, including the financial toll of raising a family. For new parents, there are countless expenses that add up; one of the most consistent is the need for diapers. This week is Diaper Need Awareness Week, a signature initiative of The National Diaper Bank Network. A local organization near and dear to Joe's heart, Portland's Jewish Family Services, became the first National Diaper Bank Network participant in Maine; through the purchasing power of the network, JFS is now able to access diapers and wipes for significantly less than retail price. With the support of many donors and a generous grant from the Fruhman Family Foundation, this year JFS will distribute over 50,000 diapers. Joe applauds the charitable work being done by JFS and hopes that all Portlanders are aware how this wonderful organization is helping our neighbors every single day.
