SHIPSI Drivers Deliver 1 Million+ Diapers
We at SHIPSI are working hard to support our community during the Covid-19 pandemic. In these difficult times, we have partnered with two Los Angeles-based nonprofits to deliver badly needed supplies to local families. These organizations, LIFT and Baby2Baby, provide crucial support to children and families living at or below the poverty line.
For many families who were already struggling to make ends meet, the Covid-19 shutdowns have had a devastating effect. Significant numbers of low-wage workers have been told to stay home from their jobs, cutting them off from their sources of income and making it even more difficult for them to afford basic items like food and personal hygiene products.
Leveraging our delivery partner networks, we have helped to coordinate the delivery of diapers, food, hygiene kits, and other badly needed items to support these families. We have been able to support these efforts through donations collected on our GoFundMe page. These donations are going directly to the delivery drivers who are putting themselves at risk by leaving their homes to go out and deliver these supplies, ensuring that they are fully paid for their time and fuel. Neither SHIPSI nor our delivery networks are taking any fees for the coordination of these deliveries.
With your help, our drivers have delivered over 1,000,000 diapers, and there is an increasing need. These supplies truly are making a real-time difference to families who need them the most.
In these extraordinary circumstances, it is more important than ever for communities to come together to support one another. No one should be without the supplies they need to make it through this pandemic. If you would like to support these efforts, please visit our GoFundMe page here. If you have already donated – thank you for your generous contribution!
