Nashville, TN (LifeNews.com) — A leading pro-life organization in Tennessee is organizing a diaper drive to help the victims of the deadly tornados that ravaged the state on Super Tuesday. As a result of the damage there, a shortage of baby items, especially diapers and baby wipes, exists for the victims of the storms.

Tennessee Right to Life is helping meet this need by immediately collecting and purchasing as many diapers and wipes as it can and delivering them to emergency shelters and churches in Sumner and Macon counties.

The group delivered a truck load of diapers on Friday, continued to collect baby items throughout the weekend and is coordinating a second truck today.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our state’s pro-life movement to demonstrate once again that our concern is for all human life at its most vulnerable stages,” organizational representative Ed Albin told LifeNews.com.

“Certainly these children and families need our emergency help, support and prayers during this disaster,” he continued.

Individuals, families and churches wishing to support this project either financially or by continuing to collect these baby items for families affected by the tornadoes are urged to contact the offices of Tennessee Right to Life.

The donations are tax-deductible and can be taken to Grace Pregnancy Resource Center or New Life Resources in the Nashville area.
