TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Employees at Security Benefit took a very different route to filling out their Final Four brackets this year.
In the spirit of March Madness, associates raised funds for the Diaper Depot program.
Several managers helped "wrap up" the campaign by taking part in a blind-folded diapering competition.
Afterwards, they presented a check for $3,100 to the program.
The cash donation and actual diapers collected equated to 13,300 diapers.
"Diapers for one infant can cost up to $100 a month, which for a family in poverty can be up to 6% of their monthly income," said Stacie Borjon of the Junior League of Topeka. "Families are left to make tough decisions between buying food and buying diapers."
The Diaper Depot program was created by the Junior League of Topeka in partnership with Harvesters of Shawnee County.
The goal is to help subsidize the need for diapers around the community.
