PRAVA Diaper Drive
July 1, 2019 @ 8:00 am - July 31, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Through the month of July, we will be hosting a DIAPER DRIVE with the San Diego Food Bank for their new Diaper Bank Program. The Food Bank started the Diaper Bank Program to help solve an important piece of the poverty puzzle for young parents living in poverty by giving them the hand up they need to work for their families. Diapers are expensive and cannot be purchased with CalFresh benefits or WIC. As a result, parents try to make do without diapers by stretching their supply by leaving babies in dirty diapers longer or by reusing diapers. A diaper is a small thing, but its impact is significant. With more than 48% of the nation’s children under age three living below the poverty level or in low-income families, there are approximately 5.4 million children across America who could need assistance.
Unopened packages Diapers and Wipes can be dropped off at our office through the end of July and/or at our July 18th Contractor Beer Social. For monetary donations for diapers, please click here. * For monetary donations please note that your donation is for the PRAVA Diaper Drive.
