HAMPTON ROADS -- An annual fundraiser to help struggling parents afford diapers for their babies started Monday.

HealthKeepers Incorporated collects donations from individuals and businesses.

Newborn babies can go through an average of $100 worth of diapers a month.

Last year, the Hampton Roads and Eastern Shore chapter of HealthKeepers collected more than 36,000 diapers. The organization hopes to triple that number this year.

The diaper drive runs through July 31. Groups or businesses who want to participate should fill out the forms attached to this story.

Hampton Roads Diaper Drive also has a Facebook page.
