Slava Royzenblat, owner of 9Round Kickboxing, initially approached AWPC with the idea for a diaper drive and AWPC’s team of volunteers took it further by contacting area businesses and organizations to see if there were others interested in getting involved.
“Diapers are a necessity for every child, but not always accessible due to finances,” AWPC Client Services Director Alyssa Burkett said. “Our hope is that this diaper drive not only fills this immediate need, but makes it available for several months afterward.”
Other businesses and organizations can become involved as drop-off locations by calling AWPC’s administrative office at (248) 939-5900.
