Diaper Drive-Through at Harbor Regional Center
Diapers are expensive…and especially for those families struggling to put food on the table. So the staff of the HRC Department of Early Childhood Services were determined to find a way to help. They collected donations of diapers from companies such as Baby2Baby, the Early Childhood Education (ECE) program in Long Beach, and from the staff themselves. When we announced the diaper distribution in this newsletter, many of you came forward to provide donations as well. We thank you very sincerely for your support for fellow families.
Nearly 200 families registered for the drive-through at our Torrance office, and when they arrived the staff volunteers were waiting with packages containing diapers in the appropriate size for their child, wipes, hand sanitizer, and disposable face masks. We hope to conduct another diaper event in another part of our service area in the near future.
Thank you to Maria Rivas, Early Childhood Services Client Services Manager, and Erika Segovia, Community Outreach Specialist, for organizing this event.
