Capitals Host Hockey for Huggies Diaper Drive

by Staff Writer / Washington Capitals
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals are hosting their first Hockey for Huggies Diaper Drive on Saturday, Feb. 12, during their game against the Los Angeles Kings. Fans are asked to bring new packages of diapers to the Caps game and drop them off at section 119. Hockey for Huggies is an NHL initiative that all 30 teams are participating in this month.


All of the diapers collected will be donated to the Capital Area Food Bank, in partnership with the Washington, D.C. Diaper Bank, who will distribute them throughout the Washington, D.C., area. One in three American mothers struggles to provide diapers for their babies.

Huggies will have a booth on the concourse at section 119, where fans can play games like Plinko by donating $10 or diapers to Hockey for Huggies to win Capitals prizes including Caps hats, player autographed items and other prizes.

Fans can also text CAPS to 501501 to donate $5 to babies in need in the area or visit NHL.com/huggies. CLICK HERE to watch the Caps Hockey for Huggies PSA with Karie Erskine, wife to Capitals defenseman John Erskine.

About Huggies Every Little Bottom
Huggies Every Little Bottom has a single mission – to help get diapers to babies in need in the U.S. and Canada. The program was developed in response to a groundbreaking new study commissioned by Kimberly-Clark that revealed the critical issue of diaper need. Diaper need is the struggle to provide babies with diapers. Today, one in three American and one in five Canadian mothers struggle with diaper need, and have had to cut back on basics – food, utilities such as heat or electricity, or even childcare – in order to provide enough diapers for their babies. With the support of partner organizations, grassroots efforts and moms across the country, this program will build awareness of the issue and work to create a long-term solution.

The Capital Area Food Bank
