The Spirit Of Giving – Corinne Cannon and the DC Diaper Bank

 

The DC Diaper Bank is approaching it’s ten year anniversary. The number of families served and the power of this much-needed care and support points directly to the amazing tour de force that is the remarkable Corinne Cannon. She has not done this alone, not by a long shot. And that is all part of Corinne’s magic.¬† A decade ago, she realized that there was an extreme unmet need. One in five families in the greater DC metro area live below the federal poverty level, and zero percent of their diaper needs are met by food stamps or subsidies. Corinne¬†set out to answer the call. And with that she brought with her a universe of able and eager volunteers to meet the need. Corinne gives the word driven an whole new meaning. And we wanted to share a bit about her work as well as Corinne’s world as a working mother.

We are kicking off our week of giving by not only shining a spotlight on Corinne and the DC Diaper Bank, but also offering a simple way to be part of the solution. Share your story and the It’s Working Project will donate a package of diapers in your name. Click here to share your story.
