Hill-Evans to host diaper drive results news conference

HARRISBURG, Sept. 22 – State Rep. Carol Hill-Evans, D-York, will hold a news conference at 9 a.m. Monday, Sept. 28 at the York County Food Bank’s Emergency Food Hub, located at 1094 Haines Road, York.

Hill-Evans will discuss the results of this year’s diaper drive and speak on the need for diapers and adult incontinence products, as well as related legislation. Her partners will speak briefly about their community engagement efforts and why they chose this drive. The York County Food Bank will provide information on how best to support food banks at this time.

“Normally for this event we would be collecting in the Capitol Complex,” Hill-Evans said. “However due to a much lighter public presence at the Capitol, there will be no public collection there this year. Instead, I am asking all members of the General Assembly to purchase products and donate to their local diaper bank, daycare, food bank or senior center.”

Collections for the diaper drive are still being collected and can be dropped off during business hours until Friday, Sept. 25, at either Hill-Evans’ district office located at 53 E. North St., Suite 3 in York, or Stauffer Biscuit Co. at 360 S. Belmont St. in York (attention Shanelle Hackman).

Donations received in York will be donated to the local food bank.

For more information, contact Hill-Evans’ district office at (717) 848-9595.

Media coverage is invited.
