Baby2Baby Diaper Drive
The Los Angeles Sparks in partnership with Baby2Baby will be holding a Diaper Drive on Thursday, September 12, before the Sparks home game vs. Minnesota. Fans are encouraged to bring new packs of diapers to donate to local families in need. All donations will help Baby2Baby's mission to supply Los Angeles families in need with essential baby gear and clothing for their children up to age 12. Fans who donate new diapers will receive one (1) ticket voucher to a 2013 Sparks playoff game. "We are thrilled to be working together with the Sparks to help put a dent in the tremendous diaper need in Los Angeles," said Baby2Baby Co-President Norah Weinstein. "One out of three mothers has to choose between giving their babies diapers or food. A diaper drive of this scale enables us to help thousands of low-income families avoid having to make this decision.”
To donate, bring new packs of diapers to the Baby2Baby table in front of STAPLES Center Star Plaza Entrance on Thursday, September 12 from 5:30 PM-8:00 PM.
Baby2Baby was established in 2006, and is led by Co-Presidents Kelly Patricof and Norah Weinstein.
