For many low-income working parents, getting diapers for their children is a struggle. Day care centers often require parents to supply diapers when they drop of their kids, so if the parents don’t have diapers to bring every day, they can’t work. That’s why my office, the Food Bank for New York City, and the Girl Scout Council of Greater New York are launching the third annual holiday diaper drive to collect these essential items for New Yorkers in need. We’ll distribute the diapers we collect to emergency food pantries. Here’s how you can help:
- Bring new, sealed boxes of diapers in sizes 3 to 6 (sizes 4 and 5 are needed most) to either of my 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.
- Forward this information to your own network of friends and family and share and retweet the pinned diaper drive posts on my Facebook and Twitter pages.
