Last May, we held our very first diaper drive with the goal of collecting 10,000 diapers. Upon learning that thousands of families with young children in our community were lacking an adequate supply, people stepped up and donated over 22,000 diapers! This caring community has demonstrated their belief that all babies deserve to be clean, dry and healthy. Diapers are a basic need no baby should ever be without.
We are on track to distribute more than 100,000 diapers during our first 12 months in operation! We are now working with 12 local agencies to reach families in need and we are planning to help even more. With your support, we can meet our goal of 50,000 diapers donated through our "Make a Mother's Day" Diaper Drive. We encourage you to participate by donating diapers or holding your own diaper drive with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers. A diaper drive is an excellent project for any group--church groups, scout groups, fraternities and sororities, volunteer committees and schools.
In addition to our permanent drop off locations, we will be announcing additional locations that will be taking diaper donations throughout the month. Stay tuned for that but in the meantime--make a plan for how YOU can make a difference for local babies.
