Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank
BHCC delivered nearly 5,000 diapers to SHIM on behalf of the Diaper Bank in 2017. Special thanks to everyone who has contributed diapers and diaper coupons this year.
On the third Sunday of the month, BHCC collects baby diapers for the Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank. 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.
Tax-deductible monetary donations can be made by a check payable to Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank and mailed to 2546 Centre Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15219. Please note our church name on the Memo line of your check.
Please note that we are pausing our collection of diapers starting now and going through the upcoming holiday season. We will resume our drive again in 2018 at a time to be announced. However, you may continue to place coupons in the envelope near the Pac n’ Play, and they will be mailed to the Diaper Bank each week.
