A newly-formed group working to gather diapers for needy families is looking for your help.

The Diaper Bank of New Mexico had a 'help mob' today to help build up its inventory.

The diaper bank started in January this year. They are looking for diaper donations - they also collect adult diapers.

Organizers said the 'help mob' held Saturday also showed children volunteers how important it is to donate.

"It's such an important part of teaching our children that we have so much and we need to give back," one volunteer said.

The Diaper Bank of New Mexico provides diapers and incontinence products to 23 partner organizations in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and Valencia counties.
