Each family that pulled up got two cases of diapers and six packs of wipes.

They were prepared to help up to 500 cars.

Since the start of the pandemic, the Diaper Bank has handed out up to 90,000 to 100,000 diapers per month between their Pittsburgh and Westmoreland County locations.

Before the pandemic, that was only up to 50,000 a month.
