PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A diaper distribution event was held near PPG Paints Arena Thursday morning. Two organizations made it happen along with support from the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The distribution is a collaborative effort between Global Links, the Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank, Pittsburgh Penguins and the Penguins Foundation.
This distribution is aimed at helping families of small children that may be experiencing financial hardship during the coronavirus pandemic. Diapers are not approved items for SNAP or EBT benefits.
Beginning at 10 a.m. and lasting until 1 p.m. in the parking lots of PPG Paints Arena, cars turned onto Logan Street from Centre Avenue and were directed to pick up the diapers.
