On Saturday, businesses on and around Capitol Hill will begin collecting diapers, baby wipes, diaper cream and formula for the D.C. Diaper Bank. The drive will last until Sept. 26.

Drive organizers will set up donation spots on weekends at Eastern Market, and several local businesses have signed on as additional drop-off points, including Dawn Price Baby (325 7th St. SE), 7th Hill Pizza (327 7th St. SE), Labyrinth Game Shop (645 Pennsylvania Ave. SE) and Curbside Cupcakes (257 15th St. SE).

Last year’s drive yielded more than 13,000 diapers, but organizers are hoping to gather even more this year.

  • Let me guess…the diapers are sent out of the DC area or maybe overseas? That’s what you charity organization do. The day I donate a penny to any organization, your imaginary hell will freeze over.
