CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK)—The law firm of Johnstone and Gabhart announced on Wednesday that they are teaming up with Diaper Drop Charities for a Mother’s Day event designed to supply diapers to low-income families.
According to the firm, 1 in 3 mothers struggles with diaper needs even though diapers are one of the most essential items for mothers. Diapers aren’t covered by any state or federal program. That’s right: neither SNAP nor WIC covers the cost of diapers.
This Diaper Drop event will run from Monday, May 1 through Friday, May 9, and Johnstone & Gabhart is going to match all diapers collected during the drive. People are encouraged to bring diapers to one of the drop-off locations below. They say that no donation is too small or too large.
Main Drop-off Location: Johnston & Gabhart, 1125 Virginia St. E, Charleston, WV.
Partners Open for Drop-offs:
|Highlawn Presbyterian Church||2814 Collis Avenue, Huntington, WV|
|YMCA of Kanawha Valley||100 YMCA Drive, Charleston, WV|
|Calvin Broyles Jewelers||4708 MacCorkle Avenue, SW, Charleston, WV|
