Even if you don’t have a baby or toddler in your family … this is the one week a year when you should buy diapers, if you can.
This is the big “Stuff The Bus” week for WestSide Baby, which makes sure that thousands of our area’s littlest residents get what they need … diapers to stay dry. Sunday is the official Stuff The Bus drive at HomeStreet Bank (41st SW/SW Alaska; WSB sponsor) in The Junction, 10 am-2 pm, but if you can’t bring diapers down that day, you can drop them off at HomeStreet before then, or at other diaper-drive locations (such as another WSB sponsor, C & P Coffee at 5612 California SW, or at Les Schwab Tires in The Triangle. And here’s what you need to know about what to bring:
Last year WS Baby gave out 1.2 million diapers … and that wasn’t enough for all the families who needed help. The organization’s website explains, “Ten thousand children under age 2 live in poverty in King County. If those 10,000 children require an average of six diapers a day for 365 days, the total need is approximately 22 million diapers a year.”
