Galveston Diaper Bank Selected as 2017 Charitable Partner

Continuing a practice started in 2012, the Galveston Diaper Bank has been selected as the 2017 Galveston Island Beach Revue charitable partner.

The Galveston Diaper Bank provides diapers and wipes to local organizations involved with creating a healthier environment for our low-income families. Guests to this year’s Beach Revue are encouraged to bring diapers and wipes for donation at the event merchandise booth.

Additionally, the Galveston Diaper Bank will be holding a special youth parasol decorating contest during the event. There will be a special award for the best decorated parasol given before the start of the Bathing Beauties contest.

“Galveston Diaper Bank is honored to be chosen as the charity partner for the 2017 Galveston Island Beach Revue,“ explains Galveston Diaper Bank’s Kathy Modzelewski. “We’re excited to be a part of such a great event which brings so much fun and excitement to Galveston. Thanks to the Galveston Island Beach Revue, we will have a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness of Diaper Need in our community and in turn, assist families in need.”
