Families in Harvey's path need diapers, wipes; Raleigh moms group sets up easy way to donate
Posted August 29
Raleigh Moms CARE, a local group of moms who support charities and other efforts that serve kids, has set up a Baby Registry through Amazon to deliver diapers and wipes directly to the Diaper Bank of Texas, which is serving families displaced because of Harvey's record-breaking flooding.
According to the Diaper Bank's Facebook page, diapers aren't typically provided by relief agencies, but they are critically needed for infants and young children who aren't potty trained. The Diaper Bank, which collects and distributes diapers from its San Antonio base, put a call out for diaper donations a few days ago.
In response, Raleigh Moms CARE has set up an easy way to help. Through this Baby Registry on Amazon, all of the items that are listed will be delivered directly to the Diaper Bank of Texas. Just be sure to select "gifting address" as your shipping option so those diapers go straight to the diaper bank. The registry includes diapers, wipes, diaper cream and similar items.
