Gray Television’s WILX-TV (Lansing) has teamed up with Capital Area United Way
to assist with the organization’s Diaper Drive to help low-income families who can’t afford to buy diapers for their children.

Baby and adult diapers, along with wipes can be donated until June 21, but diapers will be accepted until the end of the month.

The diaper drive will take any and all sizes and brands.

United Ways across the nation engage volunteers to help others on June 21 through their annual Day of Action.

This year they have partnered with LAFCU and the Lansing Ignite.

Items can be dropped off at all LAFCU locations (through June 20) or you can text uwdiaper to 41444 and make a monetary donation. That money will be used to buy diapers and add them to the drive.

Last year, over 12,000 diapers were collected. The drive goes until Friday, June 21.
