3rd Diaper Drive Runs Now Through March
Wayne Pediatrics will be hosting its 3rd annual Diaper Drive this February and March 2023 to collect diapers, baby wipes, creams and feminine hygiene products to support Detroit families in need.
Wayne Pediatrics is a one-stop practice including primary, specialty, and behavioral health board-certified pediatricians to ensure your child’s overall wellness at every stage of development. Since opening its doors in 2020, Wayne Pediatrics’ Diaper Drives have been a yearly event to give back to the community.
“Health inequity, which includes access to diapers and feminine hygiene products, is an issue in our Detroit community,” Samona Owens, Wayne Pediatrics practice manager, said. “According to the National Diaper Bank Network, one in three American mothers struggle to supply diapers for their babies, causing mothers to skip meals and even miss work or school. That’s why Wayne Pediatrics hosts this diaper drive – to uplift our community and give families a solid foundation,” Owens said.
To contribute to the Diaper Drive, please drop donations at 400 Mack Ave., Detroit, Michigan from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Donations can also be mailed.
Collections, which will be accepted until March 17, 2023, will be donated to the Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank. “We’re excited to further Detroit’s health equity while supporting our community’s children at every stage of their development,” Owens said.
