KENNEWICK, Wash.—Survivors of domestic violence are in high need of diapers. Volunteers for the Domestic Violence Services of Benton and Franklin Counties are asking for diaper donations.
Sunday they had their annual diaper drive outside of the Kennewick Walmart. Last year they collected about a mini van's worth but volunteers say they go fast. They tell KNDU they distribute about five times each week and that is just in the resource center. Mothers at the shelter use the donations every day.
"Sometimes the first contact that a woman may have with our agency is she's looking for diapers and things like that and so us being able to provide those things is a way for us to sit down and have a conversation with her about what's going on in her life," says Kate Carter, DV Victim Advocate.
The Domestic Violence Services of Benton and Franklin Counties are always accepting diaper donations especially in bigger sizes. If you want to donate head to their website http://www.bfcac.org/general/get-some-help
