Public Drive-Up Diaper Distribution Event Now Thursday, June 25 10 am-1 pm
Global Links and the Western PA Diaper Bank (WPDB) have partnered to host a public drive-up diaper distribution event outside PPG Paints Arena (RAIN OR SHINE), thanks to support from the Pittsburgh Penguins and Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation. The distribution will be equipped to serve up to 1,000 cars.
**For everyone's safety, we unfortunately cannot accommodate walk-ups at this event, and will direct families to other organizations who can help them obtain diapers.**
Families and caregivers of young children who are experiencing financial hardship are invited to line up by car outside PPG Paints Arena to receive (at no cost to families):
- 1 case (four packages) of diapers per car
- 1 package of wipes per car
- 2 families CANNOT be represented in one car
- Parents or caregivers will have the option of choosing one or two different sizes of diapers (Sizes 1-6 available).
Please note this Diaper Distribution is for children diapers and NOT adult diapers/briefs.
An informational sheet listing neighborhood resource centers that can provide further diaper assistance, as well as safe sleep information provided by Cribs for Kids, will also be distributed with each case.
Traffic details are as follows:
- All vehicles attending the diaper distribution will enter the distribution area by turning onto Logan Street from Centre Avenue. Once on Logan Street, personnel on site will direct vehicles from the lots to the location at which the diapers will be distributed. To exit, all traffic will be routed to Fullerton Street and will exit via Centre Avenue.
- Bedford Avenue between Washington Place and Crawford Street will be closed to traffic from downtown going uphill. Traffic from downtown can turn right onto Washington Place to access Centre Avenue or stay left on Bigelow Boulevard.
