Join us for our Diaper Drive during the entire month of July!
Some context:Nearly two out of three low-income children in King County are behind their peers when they start kindergarten. The ParentChild+ program closes this gap by helping parents become their children’s first and best teachers. This program reaches low-income families when and where it matters most – in the home, when children and 2 and 3 years old. Trained parent coaches visit families at home twice a week for two years, bringing a book or toy each week to model educational play. Families are matched with coaches of the same language and cultural background so the program is culturally relevant. In King County, over 1300 families are served each year through this program!
Here comes your part:To help ParentChild+ families manage the challenging financial impacts of COVID-19, Emerging Leaders 365 will be gathering diapers to be distributed to ParentChild+ families. This is a great way to engage your community and help families in a tangible way.
By signing up for this project, you are agreeing to either purchase diapers yourself or host a drive to collect diaper donations from your community. Diapers can either be shipped or delivered to West African Community Council by July 31(address to come). We will follow up with more information on diaper sizes, delivery information, and tips for hosting a drive!
Join us virtually on July 1 from 5:30-6:30 PM to kick off the project and learn more about the ParentChild+ program. Click respond, and we’ll send you the link to join the call.
Can’t make the call? No worries! It will be recorded so you can watch it anytime you sign up during July.
This opportunity is for young professionals as part of the Emerging Leaders 365 program.
