PPG Paints Arena Drive-up Diaper Distribution: NEW DATE
June 25 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Local humanitarian aid organization Global Links and the Western PA Diaper Bank (WPDB) have partnered to host a drive-up diaper distribution event on Friday, June 25, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., outside PPG Paints Arena, thanks to support from the Pittsburgh Penguins and Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation. The distribution will be equipped to serve up to 1,000 cars.
Families and caregivers of young children who are experiencing financial hardship are invited to line up by car outside PPG Paints Arena to receive a case (four packages) of diapers, as well as a package of wipes, at no cost to families. An informational sheet listing neighborhood resource centers that can provide further diaper assistance, as well as safe sleep information provided by Cribs for Kids, will also be distributed with each case.
Parents and caregivers will have the option of choosing a one-size case of diapers, or two packages each of two different sizes.
Global Links and the Western PA Diaper Bank have been able to leverage our grant dollars and relationships with vendors to secure diaper inventory, and with the assistance of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Penguins Foundation in providing a location and logistical support, we are able to host a day for parents and caregivers to acquire diapers for the young children in their care.”
Traffic details are as follows:
- All vehicles attending the diaper distribution will enter the distribution area by turning onto Logan Street from Centre Avenue. Once on Logan Street, personnel on site will direct vehicles from the lots to the location at which the diapers will be distributed. To exit, all traffic will be routed to Fullerton Street and will exit via Centre Avenue.
- Bedford Avenue between Washington Place and Crawford Street will be closed to traffic from downtown going uphill. Traffic from downtown can turn right onto Washington Place to access Centre Avenue or stay left on Bigelow Boulevard.
