Summer Diaper Drives Needed

Did you know that the summertime sees the fewest diaper donations? Diaper drives are critical to keeping our shelves stocked through to the holidays. Diaper drives can be anything you'd like them to be! At a party, some people just ask guests to bring diapers instead of a gift or food. It can be that easy! Or you can can host a bin (which we can provide) at a workplace, church, school or social club. More information can be found here, including signs and social media posts. We'd love to thank you like our friends at Rose Dental below.

    Summer Volunteer Days at Austin Diaper Bank

    Summer is here! Get you good deeds in while you have some extra time. You can volunteer at Austin Diaper Bank and leave knowing you helped babies and seniors with just an hour of your day. We love volunteers of all ages. If your little is too little to volunteer, we have a play room with some toys and books. Feel free to bring your own things to occupy their time. Big kids, older than 5 or 6, can help their parents count, sort and wrap diapers. We often have other projects too, like making thank you posters or decorating donation bins. 

    Sign you and your family/friends on our Volunteer page. See you soon and thanks!

    President Obama Talks Innovation and Collaboration to Solve Issues, Like Diaper Need


    Kicking of SXSW Interactive today, President Obama talked about a range of issues but the most important to us was the minute he spent talking about the importance of diapers. He told the audience about a new collaboration whereby non-profits can save 25% on bulk purchases of diapers so they can distribute them to low-income families. While the government gathered the parties at the table, it's not a government program. Rather, "it's a convergence of diaper makers and logistics companies and internet companies," he said. He concluded by urging Americans to step up, no matter what their interests, passions or concerns were, because the country needs everyone's involvement. Kudos Mr. President and thank you!

    Here's the nitty-gritty of the White article that talks about this initiative: https://medium.com/@WhiteHouse/surge-pricing-for-diapers-456df8b59c1f#.m6i3xcom3

    White House and Pres. Obama Talk Diaper Gap In Advance of SXSW Visit



    President Obama and the White House are pushing a plan for civic engagement and using technology to solve social issues. The President will address these issues today while speaking at SXSW. The example that Obama is holding up is an unlikely collaboration: how retail companies, manufacturers and non-profits are working together to to provide diapers to poor families, a basic need that is often overlooked.

    Huggies is donating 22 million diapers nationwide to help address the diaper gap. 10,000 diapers were just donated this morning to Austin Diaper Bank to emphasize its support of fighting diaper need while the President in town. THANK YOU HUGGIES!

    Austin Diaper Bank is the only organization of its kind in the greater Austin area. The group has raised over 350,000 diapers for over 5,000 babies and senior citizens in need since incorporation in June 2013. As a member of the National Diaper Bank Network, Austin Diaper Bank works collaboratively with the social services agencies in the area to get diapers where they are needed most.
