WEST MIDDLESEX, Pa. (March 18, 2014) — Flynn’s Tire Group is supporting a high school charity project by sponsoring a diaper drive for needy families.
“Kristi’s Diaper Drive” is a senior high school project inspired by Kristi Fitzgerald, a senior at Seneca Valley High School and daughter of Shaun Fitzgerald, Flynn’s Tire Wholesale general manager.
Each of the 19 retail Flynn’s Tire & Auto Service locations will have a collection bin where the public can drop off unopened packages of disposable diapers to help financially struggling families in need. Diapers will then be collected by Flynn’s Wholesale delivery trucks on May 8 and delivered to the North Hills Food Bank in Ross Township, Pa.
“I wanted to choose a project that will help people in the community,” Ms. Fitzgerald said. “Diapers are expensive and that can take a huge part of a mother’s budget. A diaper drive can give some relief to financially struggling mothers.
“I am very grateful to Flynn’s Tire for their help in making my diaper drive a success. Being able to place my collection bins in all 19 of the Flynn’s Tire & Auto Service locations is a great help to me. I am very thankful that I have the North Hills Food Bank to take my donated diapers to because I know that they have a network in place to distribute them to those that need them.”
