Eastside Baby Corner’s one-day emergency drive July 25 netted 11,000 wipes and nearly 3,000 diapers for children impacted by the fires in Eastern Washington.
The nonprofit organization received a call from relief organizers in Wenatchee asking for assistance with diapers, wipes and pull-ups.
However, EBC did not have enough pull-ups or wipes to contribute, and decided to ask for help collecting the items. Relief organizers, needing the supplies immediately, came to pick up the donations Saturday morning, leaving donors just one day to get their contributions to EBC.
The 13,000 diapers, wipes and pull-ups (the combination of donated and EBC-supplied diapers) should be enough to keep 100 children in diapers for a month.
