A group of central Virginia moms is collecting diapers for a cause.

The Moms Club of Charlottesville North set up shop at the Kroger store in Rio Hill shopping center Saturday.

They brought in baby items such as diapers and wipes and sold baked goods. All proceeds and donations will benefit the Jefferson Area Children's Health Improvement Program and the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

"Everyone needs diapers, families need diapers and it's an expense," said Natalie Vandenabeele of Moms Club of Charlottesville North. "I think the average family goes through about 3,000 diapers for a child and for a lot of people, that's a really big expense. So this is a way that we can help families in our community."
