So I'll other other diaper bank and you can really that you. But a food bank is that you guys really focus on papers. And papers supplies pain apparently is. For if we can get on the things we do that at present lives our primary focus and you don't turn on anything right turndown and the so rather I don't start by talking with us a little bit about. What Abby bottom covered is. OK so as you mentioned that we've uncovered is a diaper bank we provide diapers and wipes low income families in the buffalo area and surrounding areas as well. We do and no cost of the people who are coming in receiving the services and from the monthly basis. It's a labor of love for sore I'm a mother and I'm a single mother and I have been a low income situations so it's important to me to. Fill a need that I was saying there's not filled you and so thankfully I was able to start this organization. And started in my living Rohm and get it to a point now Orion partnering with development grant a community center to be able to have outreach and intake location. That is awesome thing that's love art community questioning our keynote. The ten year I think people are. Specially tuned to giving back and helping others and not a mentality season. But you're around you see that within the questioner community people are always eager to get back and I love that use not complete need. These counts tuition. And now you've helped hundreds and hundreds of kids yes afternoon world. Over 500 children since we started partnering with the Della and granite community center and main. And just we're getting at least twelve to fifteen children a week that are still coming in and we've seen people come back and it's been really great feedback link also see people receive in the so. He had the instant you started this. In your living about when you started and how you started everybody covered. Well about may 26 team that really got serious about it and started to gather and supplies and have no place to put them so they were in my living rooms though. I'm really getting I was proud I ordered them through jet dot com. But it's not come. Their website but they have a community papering program where they provide a released the disc now the army when he used to purchase ball diapers that's Adams when I start telling people about it they start giving me diapers. -- this building in those donations and then also ordering some. Just taken a little money at my paycheck and putting into the side. To build and until 2016 is when you start it yet how many people have you helped since that. Well. I didn't have a good and take out take process occurred so quite honestly I had maybe eight or nine people in nine children who. Heard I was doing it and you know people like new family members. But when I got with the development griner communities and assess that that's always some really big spike of growth because people could come there. And it wasn't as tired I was like delivering a moment from. I'll I'll packaging of my living room delivering a moment frock or not we delivering them writes you right to the families again. He still did Saturday they come to an outing I don't do that. Now they have right to this than announced it's obviously easier and more convenient for me to drop off donations and muscled pick up diapers to Annie is looking to drop off diapers. Wipes. Top right off the television writer community center against apple right off at the democratic communities and an 877 these development or at senator Tim Kennedy's office on South Park and the. It's him great location and who's ever parts of the city yes south buffalo and on the decide exactly which is finding an answer for her. People people are coming down the smearing. Curry never reached do you Catholic T find them mark community specific or are you reaching these people coming from all across Western New York I have people come and. Mile across Western New York coming as far as we've filled in San barn but also coming from right up the street so it's really a diverse mix of people. I'm we've been lucky that the Priscilla project has been spreading the word so what is the Priscilla project they are I'm. They go with refugees. All immigrants and now. They help them provide services or get services like quake and take them around and from appointments so when they got hold of the fired they begin with than people's though. People are coming literally from everywhere yeah allow an amoeba plus two huge refugee population it doesn't it amazes me all the time. To think about coming refugees behalf. We don't area and it's nice to see the assistance that's placed out there yet help them get on their feet when they come here for whatever reason that they might make refuge there. Yet still when you started every bottom covered and your house moves without being at a mean he's an actor. The process of getting every bottom covered. Started. To imagine getting from where you where to re earn out and and and well. My process is pretty I try to make it very simple I have. Once I've opened and launched a just made a very simple fired instantly have diapers we have wipes his were located come on now and at first it was just crickets this was a surprising because of you know concern about being offered and in the fire went viral and we were in rolling about eight attendant in a day the first two months and is just prior to be a steady now Canon. Then more steady than. Just running out of supplies and things like that it just the work picked up it picked up fast and we went with it. So and you mentioned you parred eight partnered with senator Kennedy's office as well what other. Local partnerships do you have or very great partnership that we have is with hope buffalo Stan Meyer and that's just been a wonderful. Opportunity to kind of branch out and do something different than we would normally do we got a thousand dollar mini grant. And it's for dinner parties so we're just place basically making dinner parties where we bring young girls and and we sit down cook with them and then talk to them about. How to prevent teen pregnancy now so it's completely different when I would normally do but it allows us to start to back into the same communities. Then I'm from in that we're certain you. What got killed and more help buffalo. Hope buffalo is an initiative. Through CAI global I don't wanna mess up too much on it but I don't. They basically are here to prevent teen pregnancy and prevent ST eyes and asked TDs. And to do so by reaching back into the community and speaking with the children and giving them something else to do other than you know be idol basically solemnly. Have a lot of different initiatives and the many grants are doing innovative many grants and I apply it and it's been a great partnership to have the great. Great organization and the work they do is very necessary as much as I like to cover bottoms if we can prevent. Children from right you know getting pregnant is in the next even better when I honestly you have much chance. The nuts actually true Tenet take all measures and work the whole right whole community and it takes a community Tryon. Help others is that us. It does it takes a community to raise a child and it takes the entire village in mountains into the village so we all have to be apart and think about what we can do. And you experience has it been like pretty amazing theater seat the outreach you've gotten. It has been numb. I'm a crybaby so after gays and bottom Dick had picked a bad idea Theres probably still look at the but it's. It's really fulfilling experience you know after you've analog where to come here and look at the signs he ate in Stan. It's a really great.

Your 'cause my 'cause Del Mar and is off this week I'm in studio with Fries the hill from every bottom covered in local not for profit. Thank her. Think yes yeah I like that the I might reach these diapers ferret those people who are in need that low income families. Who need help provide for their children and that was an interesting when I was researching and I didn't realize that. Diapers and diaper supplies eighty weights aren't. Covered along and families and T. Expensive I can't I don't have kids that they. They can run up to a hundred dollars a month on and if you don't have money your year lending you know worried about getting funding from. Programs that are here in our colleague. Then yes it would be hundred dollars a plaque to come by yeah now sometimes or where compared to sack combines though if you pair receiving food stamps or to end of what is. But. I money for low income family right smile a mile even if you have a family of six is still various now. And the thing is to you that I and from you know my cousins who have the eighties and kids and are around they added diapers fast lap times. There and size one. And it's a whole box of them. Bad than good for us because we do so I would say that's a great opportunity for you to capitalize and getting donations exactly Wheatley Dana undergo another diapers and it just comes out about uncovered. Exactly and that's we've been blessed to have that happen when parents are. The children growing up with a potty training we get goes and now take those two anything holidays on deck right exactly the. Anyone have any children out there that they have extra diapers amiga they haven't. They don't have a need for anymore. He brings everybody covered yes they can and tell us where donations accepted. So again that's the democratic community center at 877 east element and then also and senator attend Kelley's office on South Park avenue. In south buffalo yes so east Alvin. Or in south buffalo eighteen drop off any extra diapers you wanted to be like to donate yes and we thank you and evidence yes absolutely. So rather well actually about enrollment for families how to they enroll in every bottom covered in getting the diaper diapers by seeming need. We just have a small application just required to some demographic information on. We also need proof that he would qualified so. Food stamp tired. Medicaid currently carry anything that would lend to defect to our low income pay stubs in some cases you can take that information. And that's pretty much it we don't make it really high process so long as you have that you can come back receives supplies and monthly basis which they find the enrollment. Form her application is available on the website everybody covered that pork or. You can now and find it in the Donovan granderson and we do keep paper cup be so if you're there for something now sore. Few organization that's looking to get the diaper apparently get applications acknowledge. Info at every bound covered or an outgoing and respond back with whatever supplies you might need. Great so we're. I am families. And the children viral with an avid Adam covered. How often can me get that extra supply its income on a monthly basis it's just the small supplied just enough to kinda help fill a gap zone. They can come once every thirty days pretty much as a standard if there is some underlying issue is some concern. They're more than welcome to contact us we are person by person or a case by case bases. But overall it's every thirty days or once a month. That's great attract great help for her. These parents you Levy can't afford diapers dad slow and has also reading and remembers your website or face but I can. A lot of times two for parents. When they are sending their children tune take care and child care they have to send them with what the supply of that race yes and so sometimes his parents. They can afford to send their child to the child care ran with diapers and end up staying home right right at the kids which is. Obviously not productive in society that you can't go out and be productive when I trying to. It's yet parents cannot send children to daycare or like pre K program unless they have proper coverage for the day so. A lot of times apparently take off work and then they miss that money a lot of times you might not be some paid time off that Federer. So yeah a lot of parents aren't getting an opportunity to better themselves or their missing network herb Meyer and their record with that these non. I need of diapers and light I. Which is unfortunate Asian have to be in that situation I just isn't it great that so it's gas which is a great. Reason for everybody covered TO. How can help these parents yes just you know just how I mean. Sometimes you can't put yourself in that position could you magnet that where yours you know that might be a concern of yours. But it is a concern of someone else's and we are all those society we still have to be there for one another yet. Again I love this community I love Western New York is everyone's. Really willing to help and give back and help others in our community right now haven't got anybody say that's the most ridiculous thing I've heard yet. I'll hook so flexible iso offense. That's a great thing we've all had been there had rightly so or know somebody who has lived in them. Now. Do you partner with Annie that child care. I don't but if you're Chao appeared in a partner in the column from the lips say got yeah and it didn't have Cheney's sometimes these child care organizations. We're having is look these children and maybe get. They not respond from parents aren't. Coming in bringing a sudden there it is an opportunity in an apartment with everybody recovered as well there. And then also you know helps nearly parents and their attraction to guess exactly we're looking for places to do donation drop spots so who are business or you have somewhere that. We can setup of then we will gladly do so on them receives all the donations that we can get that's great that's a really idea to have donation drop spots via its around communities of people can just. Have they even got to drop off tightening and lights I wanna make it as easy as possible and that's Grady. With that being said. Come to you partner and under other companies to set up like donation drives they're all yes I events for donation. Definitely a 22 and you'll see a lot more of that in the bottom cover right now we. Just if you say that you wanna have a little donation spot we would definitely accommodates you but I really want to. Get more you know blows to the ground and get out here and find people and make more of these requests yes you know and that way for people to necessarily come right absolutely be. The strategy cat and exactly. Yeah. Now uncovered in a local organization that you started idea here but it's part of a national. Yes. Yes we act active members of the national diaper bank network. And gas the work that we get to do so there is more or. It's a meeting of the minds if you will of other diaper banks all across the country that are doing work similar or greater than the work I'm doing and I get to. Pick their brains and share things and am doing now as they speak at their conference in October. About how to do what I'm doing and have this grassroots mission and to be able to reach out to the community get that feed ban and it. Opportunities like this yeah. So.
