United Way of the Laurel Highlands is starting a Diaper Bank

UPDATED: 8/23/21 -- The United Way of the Laurel Highlands is starting a diaper bank that will serve Cambria and Somerset Counties.
 
The organization has identified diapers as a need for families in the Laurel Highlands and is holding a diaper drive to help. The goal is to gather 500 packages of donated diapers by Oct. 7 to start the project. The collection kicks off on the United Way’s Day of Action, June 21.
 
To help, drop off packages of diapers at the United Way office, located at 422 Main Street, Suite 203, Johnstown, PA 15901. Packages can also be dropped off at one of the organization’s 25 Partner Agencies. For a list of partners, go to uwlaurel.org/partneragencies. Email Rick Kazmer at rick@uwlaurel.org to set up a time to drop off diapers at the United Way's Somerset office. 
 
Monetary donations for this project will be used to buy diapers to build the supply. Send checks to: United Way of the Laurel Highlands, 422 Main St., Suite 203, Johnstown, PA 15901. Put "Diaper Drive" in the subject line. 
 
For more information on  how to help, or to be a collection point, email admin@uwlaurel.org, or call 814-535-2563. 
 
On Oct. 7 the United Way’s Power of the Purse event will culminate the drive.
