Taking Care of Our Youngest Community Members

Wanting to make a difference in the community for families with infants, Miller-Valentine Group Associates in both the Dayton and Cincinnati offices held a “Diaper Drive” during the end of September for the benefit of Gem City Gives, Corp.

Gem City Gives was established in 2011 exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.  The organization launched a diaper bank in 2014 to help fulfill a need in the community — keeping babies clean, dry and healthy.  Their goal is to collect, store and distribute diapers to families with babies who are homeless,  on public assistances,  low income, or have emergency situations.

Supporting the National Diaper Need Awareness Week, Miller-Valentine Group held a successful diaper campaign, with Associates donating 4,568 diaper wipes, 2,518 diapers, and $295 in cash contributions.

This effort was coordinated by the Miller-Valentine Group Helping Hands committee, a team of Associates who identify and provide opportunities for Miller-Valentine Associates to engage in community service.
