United Way of the Southern Tier Sponsors Diaper Drive

April 20, 2021:

United Way of the Southern Tier is partnering with two nonprofits in Chemung and Steuben counties for a diaper and baby needs drive just in time for Mother’s Day. 

Diapers were in demand before the pandemic and families across our region are still in need. (Read more: “Millions couldn’t afford diapers before the pandemic. Now, diaper banks can’t keep up,” The Washington Post, March 1, 2021.)

• Diapers (Sizes 3-7; major brands preferred)
• Pull-Ups (Sizes 2T and 3T)
