As a mom of twins (who will be 15 on Saturday - eegads, when did that happen), I can attest to how expensive diapers are - times two. So of course Hockey Mom is loving the new Hockey for Huggies initiative and I encourage my fellow Caps fans to join me in helping the team collect diapers during the game against the L.A. Kings this Saturday.
The team will be collecting new packages of diapers in the concourse of section 119 at Verizon Center, where Huggies will have a booth. Here fans can play games like Plinko by donating $10 or diapers to Hockey for Huggies to win Capitals prizes including hats, player autographed items and other fun items.
All of the diapers collected will be donated to the Capital Area Food Bank, in partnership with the Washington, D.C. Diaper Bank, who will distribute them throughout the Washington, D.C., area. One in three American mothers struggles to provide diapers for their babies so let's help keep those little tushes clean and dry while chipping in for those in need!
Fans can also text CAPS to 501501 to donate $5 to babies in need in the area or visit NHL.com/huggies. CLICK HERE to watch the Caps Hockey for Huggies PSA with Karie Erskine, wife of Capitals defenseman John Erskine.
About Huggies Every Little Bottom
Huggies Every Little Bottom has a single mission – to help get diapers to babies in need in the U.S. and Canada. The program was developed in response to a groundbreaking new study commissioned by Kimberly-Clark that revealed the critical issue of diaper need. Diaper need is the struggle to provide babies with diapers. Today, one in three American and one in five Canadian mothers struggle with diaper need, and have had to cut back on basics – food, utilities such as heat or electricity, or even childcare – in order to provide enough diapers for their babies. With the support of partner organizations, grassroots efforts and moms across the country, this program will build awareness of the issue and work to create a long-term solution.
