ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) - The Junior League of Greater Elmira-Corning will be providing diapers and menstrual products for those in need at two giveaways in Elmira. 

The first event is happening on Monday from 4 to 6 PM at the Elmira EOP building on Baldwin Street.

The second event is set for January 9th from 4 to 7 PM at the Family Services of Chemung County on Water Street.

The group says the giveaway is important because it not only impacts individuals and families, but the entire community when caregivers can't go to work or lack access to basic supplies.

Last year, the group distributed an estimated 11,000 diapers and 350 menstrual product kits through a series of pop-ups across the Elmira community.
