The Westchester County Diaper Bank will once again be the beneficiary of the No Child Wet Behind run/walk fundraiser was held Saturday, May 21, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at FDR Park in Yorktown. Last year, the event raised over 10,000 diapers for the county’s diaper bank.
The day starts with a competitive 5k run around FDR Park, followed by a 1-mile walk and other activities geared towards family fun. Donations of diapers (even partially opened packs) will be accepted throughout the day. Those registrants who take a package of diapers to the event will have a chance to win raffle prizes. Register for the run.
No Child Wet Behind (NCWB) is a non-profit organization that was started by the owners of Northeast Doulas, LLC, a for-profit company based out of Peekskill that provides professional birthing, postpartum and pregnancy services to families in Greenwich, Westchester, and New York City.
The Westchester County Diaper Bank (WCDB) – a partnership between The Junior League of Central Westchester (JLCW) and County Executive Robert P. Astorino and the Westchester County Department of Social Services – provides diapers at no cost as assistance to families in need in Westchester. The JLCW supports the bank by soliciting donations, organizing drives, managing and packaging inventory, and processing applications, while the Westchester County Department of Social Services helps to distribute the diapers. Since its inception, the WCDB has distributed hundreds of thousands of diapers to thousands of babies and toddlers.
