Homeward Bound's Baby Diaper Drive In Need Of 200,000 Diapers, Wipes

Awards & Events | 2 Jan, 2013 | Eric Shepperd

Help fill the gaps and ensure bright, healthy futures for babies and toddlers in need. Homeward Bound’s 14th Annual Baby Diaper Drive is underway, collecting diapers and baby wipes for Homeward Bound families.

Homeward Bound’s Diaper Lady team of volunteers has set the goal of collecting 200,000 diapers and $75,000 in emergency baby funds. All wipes and any and all sizes of diapers will be accepted, with a greater need for larger sizes (4, 5 and 6).

Because diapers and baby wipes cannot be purchased with food stamps, many children go without ― in addition to medication, hearing aids and other health-related needs. Thus, mothers are often forced to miss work and stay home to care for their children, perpetuating the cycle of unemployment and homelessness.
