11:48 a.m., Nov. 6, 2013--University of Delaware faculty and staff kept Ellen Lepine and Kim Stewart busy sorting and stacking diapers as a result of the Days of Caring diaper drive.

When Debbie Finch from Delaware 2-1-1/Help Me Grow arrived to pick up the diaper donations, she began to cry when she saw the amount of diapers UD had collected.
