914CARES Takes Part in World’s Largest Diaper Drive
From May 1-6, Westchester non-profit 914Cares will take part in the World’s Largest Diaper Drive, a collaborative effort by diaper banks across the country. While the collective goal is for all participating organizations to gather 2,000,000 diapers for families in-need, 914Cares’ specific goal for Westchester County is to collect 100,000 diapers by May 6.
“One in three families in the US cannot afford to diaper their babies,” 914Cares CEO and Chairman Jessica Reinmann said. “There are physical and emotional effects of diaper need—babies without enough diapers are susceptible to diaper rash, but there’s also a demonstrated link between diaper need and maternal depression. The World’s Largest Diaper Drive is a great way to draw awareness to the work that 914Cares does all year long.”
914Cares has partnered with donation locations across Westchester County, including:
• Royal New York, Chappaqua
• Congregation Emanu-El of Westchester, Rye
• Tig & Peach, Pelham
• Random Farms Kids Theater, Elmsford
• ROCKS Jewelry Gifts Home, Chappaqua
• The Little School, Scarsdale
Each of these locations has a bin for diaper donations through May 6, and donations can also be made via 914Cares’ Amazon Wish List. All diapers donated must be in new plastic packaging.
