SOS’s October

   October being Diaper Awareness month, Diego Robbins had joined the Texas Diaper Bank campaign to raise one million diapers. With the help of a fellow SOS members, Diana Esparza, they worked to get things ready for the drive by making posters and collection jars and getting everyone involved in such a great cause. At the end, he collected 3,153 diapers and $701.27 dollars! What an amazing turnout! Desiree De La Cruz and Jesus Flores from Thomas Jefferson HS organized an entire benefit concert to help the diaper drive! Due to their amazing efforts, Diego, Desiree and Jesus were all invited to be special guests at the Benefit Gala for the Diaper Bank.
