Help a Homeless Mother Out By Donating Diapers

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 3:09 PM


Most parents take it for granted that when their babies pee or poop, the problem can be resolved by reaching for a fresh diaper.

Homeless moms, however, don't have that simple luxury. According to nonprofit Help a Mother Out, diapers are the number one need at some homeless shelters.

"It's heart-breaking, but social workers tell us that many mothers are

re-using disposable diapers and letting their child sit in soiled

diapers all day because they can't afford to buy more," said Lisa

Truong, the group's executive director.

If you want to help a mother out, the group is holding a diaper drive this Sunday from 3-6 pm at Peekadoodle Kids Club

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
