Last month Julia Frey and I visited the East Los Angeles location of The Salvation Army to deliver the 1,772 diapers (and 160 wipes!) I collected at Bag Lady Promotions’ We Heart Moms event during the summer. It was wonderful to see helpful, smiling people at the ready to help their neighbors with things like food from the food pantry, signing up for social services, and as the director told us, creating holiday meals for people who are lonely or broke.
While many of the diapers we delivered were kept as an emergency stash, the Salvation Army contacted families who were already on their list of people who were in need. This is a story that came from their “diaper distribution day.”
Thank you for supporting this important work. We couldn’t do it without you.
