Hells Angels drive nets 14,000 diapers for needy
Reprinted from the Tucson Citizen, December 14, 2006
Tucson members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club collected 14,000 diapers – twice the number anticipated – during a one-day diaper drive Dec. 1 at Berky’s Bar, 5769 E. Speedway Blvd.
Cheryl Smith, executive director of the nonprofit Southern Arizona Community Diaper Bank, 3820 E. Bellevue Ave., said the Hells Angels diaper drive was “amazing.”
“Fourteen thousand diapers. That makes them angels in my book,” she said.
The diapers go to people with disabilities, the elderly and to families with infants. The diaper bank also provides case management for its diaper clients.
