Re "Bill would start first diaper aid program in US" (Page A1, Aug. 2): To ensure the welfare families use the monthly $80 for diapers, instead of sending a check or putting money into an account, why not produce something like a gift card? However, instead of using it at a particular store, it could be used only to purchase diapers.
With each purchase, the cost of the diapers would be deducted from the card. Any amount left over could be used the next month.
