The 14th annual Stuff the Bus event, an effort to collect disposable diapers is set for July 20 with locations for donations in West Seattle Ballard and Burien.
'Stuff the Bus' diaper collection campaign set for July 20 in three communities
The 14th-annual Stuff the Bus diaper drive by Westside Baby is set for Sunday, July 20. This year they are sending a whole new bus to Ballard, and with volunteers collecting diapers at more than 30 participating sites.
Their goal is to collect 290,000 diapers for local kids in need. Why diapers? Diapers are expensive and aren't covered by any assistance program. A baby who sits in the same diaper all day is more vulnerable to diaper rash, infection and abuse. Learn more about Stuff the Bus at http://www.westsidebaby.org/news-and-events/stuff-bus-diaper-drive-2014.
Here’s where you can find the buses from 10am-2pm Sunday, July 20th:
West Seattle: HomeStreet Bank, 4022 SW Alaska St.
Ballard: AmericanWest Bank, 2237 NW 57th St.
