The diaper drive was coordinated by Kūpuna Power and the Aloha Diaper Bank. According to the State, National Diaper Bank Network and Aloha United Way, 48% of local households are struggling to cover the basic living expenses.
The Aloha Diaper Bank has a goal to distribute essential diapers to Hawai’i families struggling with diaper needs due to low income, homelessness and emergency crisis.
Community members can continue to bring diaper donations to Kūpuna Power at Windward Mall or visit Aloha Diaper Bank’s website for diaper drives in the future.
