Run a Diaper Drive:

Diapers Make a Difference!

Help support families in your community by running a diaper drive, and make difference in the lives of those in need.

Every day, we see parents come through our doors, struggling to provide diapers for their children.The need is huge. The Opportunity Alliance can easily get diapers out to those who need them most; we just need diapers, and a lot of them!

The average infant goes through 10-12 diaper changes a day; over the course of a month, this adds up to over 300 diapers. It can cost $100 a month or more to keep one infant in clean diapers. For a family on a limited income, after rent, food and other bills, there is often not enough left for diapers.

Food pantries don’t typically have or provide diapers, and few community resources are available or able to keep up with the increase in requests for diapers.

 

How can you help?

You can help by hosting a diaper drive at your school, church or community organization.  Diaper drive packets are available to download here, and you can download a poster to advertise your drive here.

When you receive a donation of diapers, have the donor fill out this In Kind Form, and return it to:

The Opportunity Alliance
