Kalamazoo church handing out thousands of diapers weekly

From Michigan-

Saint Luke's Episcopal Church in Kalamazoo has held diaper distributions from 9:30 a.m. to noon every Tuesday.

Every week the church switches the location of the distribution between the church and Douglas Community Association. On Tuesday, April 21, 2020, the church held a distribution in their parking lot. 

Saint Luke's Diaper Bank Logistics Coordinator Evan Asher and another worker waited until cars pulled into the parking lot to delivered the diapers families needed for the week. Asher said they were distributing diapers before the COVID-19 pandemic, but recently increased their distributions.
"Now there's a lot that folks can't get right now, but we're carving out a niche and thankfully people have been very thankful and receptive of that," he said.

Asher estimated the church could hand out somewhere between 3,000 to 4,000 diapers on a weekly basis.
