Diaper Giveaway comes courtesy of Baby2Baby

PALM SPRINGS – The Palm Springs Public Library has received a distribution of diapers comprised of two sizes and packages of baby wipes from Baby2Baby, a national non-profit that provides children living in poverty with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves.

These diapers will be distributed to families at the Library along with a ‘Born to Read’ kit generously provided by the Friends of the Palm Springs Library that includes developmental information and two board books.

Packs of diapers in either size 4 (for babies 18-36 mos. or 22-37 lbs.) or size 5 (for toddlers 2-3 years old or 27-35 lbs.) are available with two packages of baby wipes and the ‘Born to Read’ kit to be given out to families at the Library starting on March 15 during regular library hours.

Families can request diapers once a week on a first-come, first-served basis.

These diapers and wipes were generously provided by Baby2Baby, an organization led by Co-CEOs Kelly Sawyer Patricof and Norah Weinstein. In the past 11 years, Baby2Baby has distributed more than 270 million items to children in homeless shelters, domestic violence programs, foster care, hospitals, and underserved schools as well as children who have lost everything in the wake of disaster.

“The Library is a community resource and we are honored to be participating in this program offered by Baby2Baby to meet the needs of families in our community,” Jeannie Kays, Director
of Library Services, said in a statement. “We learned that LA County Library was participating in this program, and we got inspired to apply too. We know that families are struggling to make ends meet these days, so we are excited to offer these diapers and wipes!”

The Palm Springs Public Library is located at 300 S. Sunrise Way, on the corner of Sunrise Way and Baristo Road. For more information about the Library call 760-322-READ (7323) or visit the
Library’s website www.pslibrary.org.
