Spring Luncheon 2013- Plant a Seed
The Women’s Fund of Portage County hosted its annual Spring Luncheon May 10, 2013 with record-breaking attendance close to 180. The Luncheon’s traditional venue is for announcing the year’s grant awards, celebrating the SPARK award, and updating supporters on the endowment. Nearly half of the people attending provided a diaper or monetary donation to help United Way of Portage County kick off its first-ever No Child’s Wet Behind community diaper drive.

United Way received approximately 80 packages of diapers and a dozen monetary donations for the diaper drive at the Spring Luncheon. Addressing the attendees, United Way of Portage County 2013 Campaign Co-Chair Erin Andrews said the donations will help United Way satisfy a need local agencies said exists in this community. “Last year alone, 600 referrals for diapers were filled, and with the help of this drive, it’s hoped a lot more can be distributed,” she said.
