Diaper drive to be held in March

Throughout March, Yale New Haven Hospital will conduct a diaper drive benefitting the Diaper Bank of Connecticut.

Diaper collection boxes will be available at the York Street Campus: Atrium (bassinet) and Clinic Building (security desk near Bank of America entrance); Saint Raphael Campus cafeteria entrance (bassinet); and 2 Howe St. (main floor, next to security desk). Employees can also donate via the Diaper Bank of Connecticut registry.

Are you done reading that?

Volunteer Services provides reading materials for patients and guests during their hospital stays, and stocks a magazine and book cart for inpatient units.

They can be left in the drop box outside the Volunteer Services office door in the York Street Campus Atrium, or in the Saint Raphael Campus Volunteer Services office.
