After Patric and Malin Hornqvist had their two daughters, 5-year-old Isabella and 1-year-old Vendela, they came to a realization.
“When you start to have kids, you realize how many diapers you go through,” Patric said. “I wish every little kid could have diapers and I know some families, they can’t afford them.” So Patric and Malin decided to do something about it.
Malin came up with the idea to donate $7,200 – in honor of Patric’s jersey number – to the Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank to provide diapers prior to Christmas to children from families at the low-income or poverty level in the region.
