The King County Correctional Guild recently delivered almost 3400 diapers along with 180 other hygiene items to Westside Baby, located in West Seattle.
“We learned about the need for diapers and wipes, along with other items such as baby shampoo, from a volunteer at Westside Baby and wanted to help,” said Officer Donald Moen. “Many of our members are familiar with just how expensive these items are and were more than happy to contribute.”
The Guild took the opportunity to make it a friendly competition between the different shifts that work at the facilities located in downtown Seattle and Kent. The winning shift was made up of officers assigned to court detail in the Kent, and they received a meal of their choice paid for by donations from Guild members.
The real winners, of course, are the members of the community being helped by this wonderful organization.
