Low-income working parents—especially homeless parents—face a problem when using child care: the services often require supplying their child’s own disposable diapers. Without diapers, they can’t use child care and they can’t go to work. That’s why my office, together with Food Bank for New York City and the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York are hosting our second annual NYC holiday “Diaper Drive” to collect diapers for low-income New Yorkers. Here’s how you can help:
• Bring new, sealed boxes of diapers—sizes 3, 4, 5 or 6, but especially 4 & 5—to one of my two offices: 1 Centre St. (19th Fl. South) or 431 W. 125th St. (storefront).
• If you’re an Amazon customer, order from the Food Bank’s Amazon Wishlist for delivery straight to their warehouse at http://amzn.to/2mq2P1V
