The Need is Great
The Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona receives annual requests for more than 1.5 million diapers; but currently, we are only able to distribute about 1 million diapers each year. And in addition to our existing partners, we consistently receive requests from new agencies wishing to work with the Diaper Bank-this means an increase in demand!
Making an Annual Commitment to a Diaper Drive
Like many non-profit organizations, the Diaper Bank experiences peak periods of donations and charitable giving. However, those we serve have a constant need. With your help, the Diaper Bank hopes to establish a series of diaper drives scheduled throughout the year. These ‘sustainer’ drives will provide a more stable monthly source of diapers for distribution, and – through the commitment of individuals, organizations and businesses – create a foundation for giving on which to build to meet community needs.
Join with others to host an annual diaper drive. The commitment can be during any month of the year. Our goal is to have multiple diaper (or financial donation) drives each month, creating a steady stream of resources to help those in crisis or in poverty.
Your commitment to hold an annual diaper drive will help ensure that a child doesn’t spend the entire day in the same diaper (and suffer abuse for crying in such a miserable situation); a single parent can leave their child in daycare so they can work or get an education; or and elderly person on a fixed income doesn’t become a shut-in who’s too embarrassed to leave their home due to issues of incontinence.
