Please come on by if you or someone you know is in need!

Alternatively, if you are able and willing to donate diapers, or any other essential items, to the LA Regional Food Bank, all donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated! Head on over to KTLA.com/Diapers or LAFoodBank.org to get started and find a drop off location nearest you.

As such, absolutely everyone is strongly encouraged to review their entries in the draft this Sunday and verify that all the information they would like to be contained in it is so and is accurate.
