Late post! A few days before 2018 came to a close; Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) joined Fox 5 DC for their Diaper Drive Donation. Fox 5 DC asked businesses in the area to contribute or donate what they could so they could provide diapers to families in need with babies. Many times as people we think about adults living in poverty but not always the affects it has on small children. Due to the lack of diaper supply, babies are often left in dirty diapers causing various infections, skin aliments, and rashes. Diapers also unfortunately cost more in low-income neighborhoods where they should in fact be cheaper. The issue is that those areas don’t always have wholesale department stores where diapers can be purchased in bulk.
Fox 5 DC partnered with Horton’s Kids and the Greater DC Diaper Bank to make sure all donations and diapers goes directly to the babies affected by the lack of supplies. When Fox 5 DC reached out to Easterns, they didn’t hesitate to get involved. Joel Bassam of Easterns met Allison Seymour in Washington D.C. at the diaper drive to present Horton’s Kids with a $1,500 check. That wasn’t all, Joel then walked Allison to an SUV full of diapers!
If you know someone in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area that goes above and beyond the call and is worthy of being recognized, Click here to nominate them.
