United Way of the Coastal Empire distributes diapers to nonprofits

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Diapers are a basic necessity for babies and toddlers, but they are also extremely expensive.

Thanks to the United Way of the Coastal Empire and Weyerhaeuser, many low-income families in the community won't have to worry about buying diapers.

United Way volunteers distributed more than 16,000 diapers to 14 different local nonprofit organizations on Wednesday.

"You know we give dollars, and we give services and we volunteer our time, but to give tangible goods like this, it means so much to the community," said United Way 211 Director Trudy Jones.

The diapers went to nonprofit organizations that already have diaper distribution programs in place.
