CHURCH HILL — T.R. Ward, owner of Storage Source One Self-Storage in Kingsport, presented a $1,000 contribution to the Heaven's Bell diaper pantry in Church Hill Tuesday morning.

Ward said he saw a news report about Heaven's Bell opening. Being a father himself he said he couldn’t imagine being unable to keep them in clean diapers.

Heaven's Bell held its grand opening last month with a goal is to provide for and protect the most vulnerable members of our society - infants and toddlers - by providing free diapers to low income families that meet income guidelines.

It is located in the Church Hill Shopping Center off of Highway 11-W two doors down from the Church Hill Food Pantry.

The diaper ministry and food pantry are open the same hours - Mondays and Wednesdays 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Heaven's Bell operates under the Of One Accord ministry's non-profit status, but is responsible for its own fundraising.

"All donations made to Heaven's Bell are tax deductible, and diapers they give out are donated directly to them or are purchased with monetary donations.

To make financial donations you can: (1) donate to Heaven's Bell with a debit or credit card on the organizations website at heavensbell.org; (2) or, hand deliver cash or a check, or mail a check payable to Heaven's Bell Diaper Pantry to any Civis Bank branch; account #2008902, (3) or, mail a check payable to Heaven's Bell Diaper Pantry to PO Box 335, Church Hill, TN 37642; account # 2008902​2​

​They also need all seven sizes of infant/toddler diapers (new born to size 6) and we need all sizes. Their diaper drop off times are the same as their distribution times: Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
