Diaper Need Awareness Week Comes Early to Pennsylvania

While national efforts for Diaper Need Awareness Week are slated for Sept. 8 – 14, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives is off to an early start–in fact, in time for Mother’s Day.

House Resolution 762, introduced by Rep. Rosita C. Youngblood, proclaims May 5 – 9 as Diaper Need Awareness Week in Pennsylvania. The week is scheduled to kickoff on May 5, with a press conference attended by statewide elected officials, diaper bank supporters and NDBN Executive Director Joanne Goldblum.  In addition, a week long diaper drive will be held in the rotunda of the Capitol to benefit the state’s diaper banks, and to prompt individual action to address diaper need.
