A 14-year-old Maine student who started a diaper bank for families in need as part of a school project continues to be deep in diapers.

Gracie Ward of Wilton has collected more than 8,000 disposable diapers since she started The Little Tushies Diaper Bank in March.

The Lewiston Sun Journal reports that she has personally served 53 families and also works with a home health care service in her town.

She continues to receive coupons and donations from across the country and a Facebook page on her diaper bank has followers worldwide.

Ward says she started the diaper bank to raise awareness that all babies need clean diapers.

She won a $700 competitive grant from Farmington SOUP at the University of Maine, and put that toward her diaper bank.
