Wee Care Diaper Service, a cloth diaper delivery and laundering service, announces new ownership and plans to expand service area.  

Wee Care Diaper service will continue providing weekly bundles of prefold cloth diapers to Chattanooga-area households under new owners Maureen and Frank Gibson. While previous owners provided pick-up and drop-off sites in locations around the city, the Gibsons are moving to a home delivery model for all households. They also have plans to expand the service area to Cleveland, Dalton, South Pittsburgh and all points in between. 

“We are pleased to continue providing this service to the expanding Chattanooga area,” said Frank Gibson who purchased the company with business partner and wife Maureen Gibson. “It is an exciting time for our family to return to Chattanooga amidst so much growth, and we look forward to watching the company grow along with the city.” 

Mr. and Mrs. Gibson both grew up in the Chattanooga area. Mr. Gibson was raised on Lookout Mountain, and Mrs. Gibson grew up in Cleveland. They began using a cloth diaper delivery service with the arrival of their first child in 2014 while living in Charlotte, N.C. After relocating to Chattanooga, they connected with Wee Care to continue using cloth diapers before they purchased the company.  

“Running the service is an extension of habits in our own home,” said Mrs. Gibson. “We choose cloth because it is a healthy option for our children and a sustainable choice for the environment. We are glad to provide that option for other families as well.”  

Wee Care Diaper Service was established in 2012 to provide cloth diaper home delivery service and mobile exchange sites for cloth diaper users in the Chattanooga area. Chattanooga had not had a cloth diaper service since Tidy Didy Diaper Service, which had been in operation since the 1970s, closed in 1994.

Would Foreign Teachers Make Better Instructors For Inner-City Students? - And Response

It seems a week doesn't go by, sometimes more in one week, without Roy or someone writing some coded messages denigrating inner-city schools and the students (using another code-hint hint) that attend inner-city schools.
