Syracuse University put in the call for action before the football game.
So I stopped at Nichols early game day morning and picked up a package of diapers. As with most purchases of unfamiliar items these days, I went through my sticker shock routine. I forked over $8.99 for an amount of diapers that might or might not get a 1-year-old through one day. I imagined how the constant need would strain a family budget.
The idea was to fill Otto the Orange’s car.
It made me feel good to add our small contribution to the greater cause.
I chatted with the folks from the CNY Diaper Bank. When I mentioned that I worked at the Liverpool Public Library, they already knew where I was going with it. Yes, we accept donations for the organization. They thanked us. I thanked them.
It’s a good idea to give where you can, when you can.
