Diapers Offered During Government Shutdown

News
WestSide Baby is offering families affected by the government shutdown free diapers and wipes on a walk-in basis. “We already know many families in our community are unable to afford all the tangible basics. No more families should be without clean, dry diapers for their baby just because they are not receiving a paycheck during the shutdown,” says Nancy Woodland, WestSide Baby’s Executive Director. Families affected by the furlough should come to WestSide Baby anytime during open hours to receive diapers and wipes while the shutdown continues. Please bring proof of government employment. See our hours and locations here. If you are interested in supporting WestSide Baby you can donate online or donate diapers at any of our locations or collection sites.

"He left it all to charities — mostly to kids, the section of society that couldn't really help themselves," his friend Shashi Karan told NPR. Read more here.
