Through July 2016 Capitol Hill’s branch of HomeStreet Bank is partnering with local nonprofitWestSide Baby to host Seattle’s largest diaper drive. Local residents are urged to donate a package of diapers at the HomeStreet Bank Capitol Hill branch to benefit local babies in need.
Continuing throughout July, the 16th Annual Stuff the Bus diaper drive’s goal is to gather more than 300,000 diapers for children in need in Western King County. The public is urged to join in to support the cause by donating packages of diapers at drives across the city. The Capitol Hill branch of HomeStreet Bank is at 700 Broadway E Unit D, Seattle, WA 98102.
WestSide Baby’s Executive Director Nancy Woodland says: “We are delighted that HomeStreet Bank is once again lending its dollars and resources to help kids in our community. There are more than 10,000 children under the age of three living in poverty in King County. These children will need 22 million diapers per year. Unfortunately, many families are forced to choose between buying diapers and paying bills, as diapers are not covered by any government aid programs, including food stamps.”
“WestSide Baby has a significant impact on the community, and we are pleased to support the work they do,” said HomeStreet Bank CEO and President Mark K. Mason. “We focus our charitable contributions on organizations that address housing and basic needs, and WestSide Baby provides the most basic of needs for the youngest in our communities. We are excited to host the Stuff the Bus Diaper Drive.”
