Host a Diaper Drive

Diaper Drives are a huge source of diaper donations and we need volunteers to organize diaper drives at their school, church or work.

What is a diaper drive?
A diaper drive is like a food drive, only with diapers.  The diaper drive can be a few days, a few weeks or maybe a month, depending on the nature of the organization hosting the drive. During that time, people bring their diaper donations and place them in the collection box, usually located in a central location, such as a lobby or office.

Organize a diaper drive?  It sounds involved and complicated...
Actually, organizing a diaper drive is fairly simple.

  1. First, get permission from the school, church or business.
  2. Work with your organization to set the dates for the drive.  The dates can be for a week or a month, or any other time frame that will work best for your organization.
  3. Promote the diaper drive with posters, flyers, letters, emails, newsletter or bulletin announcements - whatever communication works best for your organization.  This part isn't so hard because we can help!  We have some flyers you can modify with the dates and location of the diaper drive.  We also have sample letters and announcements that you can use.
  4. Collect diapers.  We can provide a collection box for you and at the end of the drive, you can drop the diapers off or have us pick them up.
That's easy enough.  How do I get started?
Just email austindiaperbank@gmail.com and we'll get things going!
