Honoring a Life of Service
Jill Bright, the 2019 Humanitarian of the Year, will be honored at a luncheon at 11:30 a.m., Thursday, Dec. 5, at the DoubleTree Hotel in Springfield. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased online.
Bright founded the Diaper Bank of the Ozarks in 2012 to address a gap between need and access because diapers are not covered under government assistance programs. Since its founding, the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization has provided almost four million diapers across 59 counties in southwest Missouri.
