NOTE: THE COLLECTION OF DIAPER WILL RESUME IN 2018 AT A TIME TO BE ANNOUNCED
On the third Sunday of the month, BHCC will collect baby diapers for the Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank. It will be similar to our second Sunday food collection for the Wallace Food Panty. One in three American moms struggles to provide clean diapers for her children. Food stamps and WIC do no cover disposable diapers. Most daycare centers refuse to accept children without a day’s supply of disposable diapers, so families are often forced to make tough decisions regarding day care and employment because they cannot afford diapers.
Sizes 4, 5 and 6 are most in need for babies. XL diapers are needed for the geriatric population.
The collection container is the Pack’N Play which is located in the hallway directly outside of the Nursery. Your diaper donation this month will be greatly appreciated!
If you would prefer to make a monetary donation in lieu of diapers, please make your check payable to Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank and mail it to Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank, 2546 Centre Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15219. Our church name should be written on the Memo line of your check. Donations are tax deductible.
