Bradshaw Institute for Community Child Health & Advocacy kicks off diaper bank
RE/MAX RESULTS Upstate and Western N.C. donate more than 10,000 diapers to launch diaper bank
Greenville, S.C.—During National Diaper Need Awareness Week, the Bradshaw Institute for Community Child Health & Advocacy of Prisma Health Children’s Hospital—Upstate launched a diaper bank to help ensure that every child in the community has enough diapers to remain clean, dry and healthy.
RE/MAX RESULTS agents served as the inaugural partner to kick-off the initiative by donating more than 10,000 diapers collected earlier this summer.
Said William Bradshaw, president and owner of Bradshaw Automotive Group, “Diapers are essential to the well-being of our community’s children. They are expensive, and we want to help ease that burden for families. We are so grateful for community partners like RE/MAX RESULTS, and we hope to continue to grow this program for many years to come.”
According to the National Diaper Bank Network, one in three families report experiencing a diaper need. Additionally, 57 percent of parents reported that they missed an average of four days of school or work as most childcare facilities require parents to provide diapers.
“Children are healthier, and parents are less stressed when there is an adequate amount of diapers,” said Kerry Sease, MD, medical director of the Bradshaw Institute. “The need is great in our community, regardless of a pandemic, and without these resources, families often do not have enough supplies to take care of their children.”
“RE/MAX RESULTS is a proud supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network, and we are honored to be partnered with The Bradshaw Institute in this great cause,” said Rebecca Kasper, RE/MAX RESULTS. “Our agents believe in giving back not only with their commission donations, but in any way they can to support our local Children’s Hospital. I would like to personally thank Miracle Agents Lisa Briganti, Jordan Johnson and the Greenville’s property couple for their commitments to give back with every closing transaction!”
The Bradshaw Institute for Community Child Health & Advocacy, part of Prisma Health Children’s Hospital, works to create optimal health for children and families through innovative education and prevention programs, clinical research, academic partnerships and best practices.
Starting January 2021, The Bradshaw Institute Diaper Bank will begin providing resources to the community and will be one of six National Diaper Bank Network members in South Carolina.
