Apex Rehabilitation & Healthcare Collects Baby Supplies for Hurricane Victims

September 13, 2017…Apex Rehabilitation and Healthcare is collecting diapers of all sizes and baby wipes for the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Apex will ship diapers and wipes to local Texas- and Florida-based charities for distribution to families in need. The Center is also accepting donations of cash, checks and gift cards which will be sent to UJA Federation for hurricane relief efforts. UJA has pledged that 100% of donations will be used toward projects that benefit hurricane victims.

While food and water top the list of essentials needed by hurricane victims, especially in the immediate aftermath of the storm, families who are displaced by harsh weather often have other needs which may be overlooked. Those with young children may have difficulty finding clean, dry diapers and wipes for their infants and toddlers.

“Watching the news coverage of these back-to-back, devastating storms has left our staff feeling that we need to do something to help our fellow Americans recover,” said David Efroyman, LNHA, Apex Administrator. “We are accepting donations from employees and community members.”

Donations may be dropped off at the Apex lobby. Apex is located at 78 Birchwood Rd., South Huntington. The collection will continue throughout the month of September.

For additional information, call Apex at 631-592-6400.
