Twin Peaks Elementary exceeds goal for diaper drive

MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Thanks to a little extra help from Twin Peaks Veterinary Center, Twin Peaks Elementary students will donate more than 7,400 unopened diapers to the Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona. 

This exceptional goal was reached in just 10 days, according to a MUSD release. 

"Our students put their heart into this project, worked hard and surpassed their goal, which was originally to collect 1,500 diapers," stated Olive Noreiga, the Assistant Principal at Twin Peaks Elementary.  "It is important that our students continue to participate in service projects and value the importance of giving back to their community."

The diapers will be donated at a special assembly at Twin Peaks Elementary on January 31, where students will present the diapers to Lindsey Jones, the Executive Director of the Diaper Bank.  Also receiving honors will be Dr. Beth Neuman, the founder and head Veterinarian of Twin Peaks Veterinary Center for the help the clinic provided to the drive. 

Students will also get an extra treat tomorrow, a special BBQ lunch hosted by MUSD Food Services.
