Continuing support of Houston Strong, Iowa Wesleyan University Nursing Students are conducting a Diaper Drive for Houston families on Friday, Sept. 8, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Ft. Madison Hy-Vee.

Beginning at 10 a.m. Sept. 9, the Hy-Vee Drug Store on the square will gather donations until 8 p.m. The Mt. Pleasant Hy-Vee Drug Store also will collect diapers, wipes and adult Depends during business hours from Sept. 8 to 13.

If unable to donate in person, a virtual diaper donation site has been created and will connect directly to the Texas Diaper Bank (Galveston) Amazon Wish list. To make a virtual donation, you can visit

Due to a depletion of blood in the Houston area, a blood drive will be held in the J. Raymond Chadwick Library on Iowa Wesleyan’s Campus in the International Room on Sept. 7. The Drive begins at 10:30 a.m. and will run until 2:30 p.m. There is a commitment from the nursing department to continue the drive after 2:30 p.m. if people there are willing to give who have not yet been able to.
