SEYMOUR - Valley Diaper Bank founder Meghan Tarby, Connecticut Partnership for Children executive director, said, "We have begun repackaging diapers and branding them with our agency labels, a practice learned from The Diaper Bank in New Haven."  
Tarby founded the nonprofit Connecticut Partnership for Children in 2009.

Tarby said she and Pelegrino volunteered at The Diaper Bank as part of the United Way of Greater New Haven's 'Days of Caring.'
