Western Pa. nonprofit turns to public for diaper donations during pandemic
Originally published on TribLive
Anna Joyner is hoping to collect 5,000 diapers by next week, and she got at least halfway to her goal on Thursday.
The Greensburg resident is the outreach coordinator in Westmoreland and Fayette counties for the Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank, an organization started eight years ago to help get diapers to families in need.
She joined other representatives of the nonprofit in accepting more than 3,500 items at a donation event Thursday outside the county courthouse. Much of that came from a month-long drive at Express Employment Professionals in Harrison City, which netted about 2,200 diapers and 1,300 baby wipes.
