“No Butts About It!” Love comes in many shapes and sizes! (Diaper sizes and car seat sizes). And car seats can be an overwhelming task to install correctly. Plus, diapers can be a constant cost burden.
Sieda has partnered with American Home Finding Association and Mahaska CPPC to combine a diaper distribution and a car seat safety check/installation. Plus, additional supporters of Sieda Family Support Services and the Diaper Bank.
Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will be there to check the current installation of car seats, or to install car seats. Children are welcome to come so they can give any tips on securing the child. As well as find out if it’s time for a change. Subsequently, 59% of children’s car seats are used incorrectly. If you have concerns about current car seat safety or resources for car seats we will help.
Sieda will be providing 50 diapers per child. We have sizes newborn to 6. The diaper grant asks that families be from Wapello county and below the 200% poverty level. If you have used the diaper bank before there will be some paperwork.
The event is Saturday, June 26th, 1 – 3 pm in the Sieda Office at 725 West Second Street, Ottumwa parking lot.
