Cassie (Spencer) DuBray (’08) Organizes “Diaper Drive”
Stutsman County Housing Authority Assistant Executive Director Cassie DuBray organized a diaper drive for Jamestown from July to August.
The idea stemmed from a need for diapers brought up during the July South Central Regional Homeless Coalition meeting at which DuBray is secretary/treasurer. Several agencies at the meeting, including Salvation Army and Community Action Region VI, indicated that they did not have diapers for families who may need them.
The goal of the fundraiser was to collect $1,000 to purchase diapers and wipes for donation. DuBray collected $242 through personal donations made to an online crowdrise fundraiser site and an additional $100 in cash donations to purchase diapers and wipes for area agencies. Hugo’s Family Marketplace donated $754 to purchase diapers and wipes. Hugo’s placed a special diaper order for the event.
Cassie graduated from University of Jamestown in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication.
