$10,000 contribution will go towards diapers, period kits, and other basic needs for families in the surrounding area
(LAKE COUNTY, IL) – To kick off 2022, Atturo Tire has committed to donating $10,000 to Keeping Families Covered, to assist them in their mission to help provide basic needs to families in the greater Lake County, IL area. Keeping Families covered is based out of Waukegan, IL, and is located next door to Atturo Tires.
Atturo Tire ran an awareness campaign in December of 2021 announcing the donation and running a series of posts on social media highlighting the organization and the needs it fulfills. Keeping Families Covered fulfills these needs by providing a wide range of items to families through their mobile pantry program. Through this program, they provide Infant Formula, Period Products, Diapers, Wipes, Pull-Ups, and Adult Incontinence products.
Atturo Leadership recently presented their donation to Keeping Families Covered as part of a combined charity event where Atturo Employees assisted in wrapping, packaging, and preparing donations to be distributed at an upcoming diaper drive. Atturo’s President Michael Mathis had this to say at the event “Most people don’t realize how big of an issue diaper need is in the United States, and as a father myself, I am proud to support an organization that helps families in need in both mine and Atturo’s backyard.”
Atturo has also committed to continue to support Keeping Families Covered through 2022 as a Diamond sponsor of their new “Changing Table” Program. Ann Marie Mathis, the Founder and CEO of Keeping Families Covered had this to say:
“These sponsorships help us to keep our shelves stocked so we can provide families with the basics they need to thrive,” Mathis said. “In each of the last two years, our distributions exceeded one million diapers, and the need just continues to grow. In 2021, we distributed about 100,000 diapers a month, serving 1,200 families and 1,800 children each month.”
Keeping Families Covered is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and relies on donations through volunteer time, goods, and monetarily to fulfill their mission of providing basic needs for families and building awareness for Diaper Need and Period Poverty. We ask you to please consider donating here – https://www.keepingfamiliescovered.org/how-to-help or support a member of the National Diaper Bank Network in your community.
