Local organization distributing free diapers and wipes this Tuesday
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The number of families in need of basic child care supplies can be shocking to many, as one in three American families don't have enough diapers to keep their baby clean, dry and healthy. One organization is aiming to help improve that number, one diaper at a time.
Meagan Johnson, founder and Executive Director of the Milwaukee Diaper Mission joined us on Monday, Sept. 26 to talk about how the Milwaukee community can help solve this problem. Saturday marked the start of National Diaper Awareness week and Johnson discussed the Milwaukee Diaper Mission's upcoming event to help the cause.
On Tuesday, Sept. 27, they will be hosting a drive-up diaper distribution from 12:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. at Hayat Pharmacy on Layton Ave. Families in-need will be welcome to receive free diapers and wipes while supplies last.
They say donations of supplies make distributions possible. To learn more about how you can help keep these distributions fully-funded on a regular basis, visit the Milwaukee Diaper Mission online.
