Holly McDaniel Joins Austin Diaper Bank as Executive Director


The Austin Diaper Bank is pleased to welcome Holly McDaniel as its new executive director, effective Aug. 22. McDaniel succeeds Beverly Hamilton, who founded the Austin Diaper Bank in 2013 and will remain on the nonprofit’s Board of Directors.

McDaniel brings to the Austin Diaper Bank more than 15 years of leadership experience at several nonprofits in both Austin and California, focusing on business development, nonprofit management and donor development. She was chosen by the Austin Diaper Bank Board of Directors after an extensive search process.

“As the Austin Diaper Bank enters its fifth year, we believe Holly has the skills, experience and enthusiasm needed to grow the Austin Diaper Bank to better meet the diaper needs of families, children and seniors in Central Texas,” said Board Chairman Julie Remde. “We are lucky to have someone of Holly’s talent on board and are excited to work with her to move the Austin Diaper Bank forward.”

“I look forward to working with the Board of Directors, staff and volunteers to create an exciting new chapter in the Austin Diaper Bank’s development and ensure we meet the diaper needs of all families in Austin and our surrounding communities,” McDaniel said.

Most recently, McDaniel served as director of development at Art Alliance Austin. During her three years with the organization, she managed and led the development department and was part of an executive team that guided Art Alliance Austin through a complete overhaul of programming, outreach and business relationships.

Previously, she was director of individual giving and philanthropy at KMFA, 89.5, the classical public radio station in Austin. While living in California, McDaniel served Polytechnic School in Pasadena as director of its annual fund, and was special events manager for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) in Los Angeles.

McDaniel earned a bachelor’s degree in art history from Occidental College in Los Angeles.

The Austin Diaper Bank, a local 501(c)(3) organization (www.austindiaperbank.org) helps close the "diaper gap" in the community by distributing donated or purchased diapers for needy babies and seniors through more than 40 partner agencies in a region from Georgetown to San Marcos. To date, the Austin Diaper Bank has distributed more than 750,000 diapers.

A New Year Means Strengthening Our Advocacy for Diaper Affordability


One way to increase the affordability of a child's basic need of diapers is to not tax them. Sales tax is 8.25% here in Texas. That might be the difference between a family's being able to afford the $1,000 annual cost of diapers for one child or a baby sitting in a soiled diaper for too long to stretch their diaper supply. House Bill 221 proposes to do just that, along with rolling back sales tax for another important need: feminine hygiene products. KEYE, the local CBS affiliate, recently covered the bill and the work of Austin Diaper Bank: View video and article here.

Deck the Halls With Diapers Holiday Diaper Drive

Toys are great but diapers are better. You can help babies meet their basic needs by hosting a diaper drive. All you need is to tell people you are collecting diapers and then a place to put them- a donation bin, your office, under the tree, wherever. We can provide a bin, signage, social media posts etc. to make it easy-peasy. Diapers in larger sizes of 4, 5, and 6 are in most demand. Same for adult sizes. Help us meet the 50 diaper per month shortfall faced by some of our Central Texas families and feel good about your amazingly good deed! Check out our diaper drive toolkit here.

If it's not in the cards this year to host a drive, it's easy to give diapers. If you already have some to donate (we take open packs too), then just drop them at one of our diaper drop locations. Or you can get them to us other ways too:

  • Shop our Amazon.com wish list and diapers can be shipped right to us. Or use your own site and gift to us by sending to 6418 Clairmont Drive, Austin, TX 78749.
Thank you for helping us provide the gift of health and well-being to our Central Texas families!
