Oldenburg coordinated the drive as a community service project, part of her AmeriCorps service.

The diapers will be distributed by County Maternal and Child Health nurses as they visit families across Oswego County with new babies or are part of the Healthy Families Program coordinated by the Health Department.

Oldenburg is a junior at SUNY Potsdam studying Community Health.
