With a Few Clicks on Amazon, People Are Fighting Diaper Despair in Florida and Around the World

(FLORIDA) – When someone visits onemorechild.org/diapers and makes a donation of diapers to FBCH and One More Child, they are doing more than using the online giant Amazon to perform a charitable act. They are helping “make a change” for thousands of children and families who the organization cares for locally and globally.

FBCH and One More Child are collecting 800,000 diapers through their 7th annual Diaper Drive, which runs through Nov. 11.

Recipients of the diapers include foster families, families served by One More Child’s Single Mom program, Family Support and Child Hunger programs, and people like Kurt Macoleth, a US Navy veteran who the organization provided diapers for in his time of need.

Six years ago, Kurt’s wife, Ashley, gave birth to their daughter Lyra the day before Kurt began chemotherapy to treat stage 4 throat cancer. In addition, Ashley was rushed to the hospital later that week, where she was diagnosed with acute respiratory distress syndrome from labor.

In the midst of the trauma and the uncertainty, FBCH and One More Child provided diapers and support to the family.

“It is the end of the world for a baby to have no diapers for a day…that is a significant issue,” Kurt said.

Last year, the Diaper Drive netted more than 650,000 diapers provided by individuals, churches and businesses, but the need for diapers continues to grow. In 2017, FBCH and One More Child – whose headquarters is located in Lakeland, Fla. –  impacted more than 200,000 children and individuals. Diapers are a necessity for the organization’s work in Florida, as well as global ministry sites such as the Malnutrition Center in Guatemala.

As of Sept. 21, 188,577 diapers had been collected. People who are ready to help make a change can drop-ship diapers from Amazon to FBCH and One More Child at onemorechild.org/diapers.

Organizations and businesses can also sign up to host a diaper drive, by filling out a simple form at www.onemorechild.org/diaperpledge.

For more information, please contact diaper drive coordinator Sundy Goodnight at 904.402.8588 or Engage@onemorechild.org.

LEO, FL – Saint Leo University was named as one of the best regional universities and best values in higher education in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges, which was released Sept. 10. In addition, Saint Leo was named one of the Best Colleges for Veterans.

The university was No. 14 among Best Value Schools in the South. To determine which colleges and universities offer the best value for students, U.S. News takes into account both academic quality and cost.

This year, Saint Leo also claimed its spot in the top 50 “Best Regional Universities” and ranked 47th among Southern universities. This rank is up from last year’s rank of 61st among universities in the South. Regional universities offer a full range of undergraduate programs and provide graduate education at the master’s level. Saint Leo also offers three doctoral programs.

To receive a “Best Value School” ranking, U.S. News calculated the university’s academic quality as indicated by its 2019 U.S. News Best Colleges ranking, and the 2017-2018 net cost of attendance for a student who received the average level of need-based financial aid. “The higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the deal,” U.S. News & Report stated in its listings. “Only schools ranked in or near the top half of their categories are included because U.S. News considers the most significant values to be among colleges that are above average academically.”

The university also was named one of the Best Colleges for Veterans among regional universities in the South, ranking 31st. Saint Leo has a proud history of educating veterans and military students. Schools named to the list participate in federal initiatives helping veterans and active-duty servicemembers pay for their degrees.

“Saint Leo University provides a terrific educational value for students of all ages and from all backgrounds, and we are pleased that the U.S. News & World Report’s rankings recognize the quality and excellence offered by the university,” said Dr. Jeffrey D. Senese, university president. “We’re proud of our Catholic heritage and commitment to higher education. These rankings point to our student-centered mission, our caring faculty and staff, and our dedication to student success.”
