DAISYFRESH DIAPER SERVICE

The Daisyfresh Diaper Service began in 1986 and operated out of the New Generations store location. Brenda Young and Trena Bruce were involved in running the service. Four clients working along with two staff processed all the diaper orders through one washer and two dryers. At times, everyone would get involved to get the job done. The Diaper Service was discontinued in 1998. It was no longer feasible to run the business because of the high price of the diapers and the availability of disposable products.
