Donation Diaper Drive Initiative Provides Essential Needs for Families
The United Heritage Charity Foundation Sponsors PATH's Diaper Drive
Many new parents across East Texas struggle to buy diapers each month. On average one baby goes through 6,000 diapers in their first two years of life. The closest diaper bank to Smith County is located in Dallas and resources can be limited. PATH is one of the only agencies in the region that regularly distributes diapers. United Heritage Credit Union is asking anyone interested in participating to give to this meaningful cause, as it helps to provide families with a basic necessity that government safety-net programs do not recognize.
United Heritage Credit Union is committed to supporting the communities near our Tyler branch through our partnership with PATH in their diaper drive as a part of our ongoing efforts to give back to the communities that we serve. We encourage anyone who is able to donate to this important cause to help us make a difference in the lives of those around us. Diaper donations are being collected within UHCU lobbies throughout the drive.
Here are some details about the Donation Drive – Diapers for PATH:
