POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KAIT) -

A GR8 Job shoutout to members of the Poplar Bluff Middle School Junior Beta Club.

The kids recently held their second annual Diaper Drive for the Child Concern Center.

After two-weeks, they had enough diapers and baby wipes to fill the cafeteria stage.

The students also made a cash donation to the nonprofit organization which provides diapers, clothing, food, utilities and other emergency items to low-income families.
