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!

The Great Central Texas Diaper Round-Up: Help Us Raise 100,000 Diapers In October!


This October is The Great Central Texas Diaper Round-Up, our effort to raise awareness across Central Texas about diaper need and also raise 100,000 diapers for our babies and seniors. Our friends at BB&T and Stepping Stone School are helping by allowing you to donate at ANY of their Central Texas locations. With 30 locations, there is one near you, making it easy to pick up an extra pack of diapers at the store or online. We take any diapers in unused condition, even open packs and loose diapers. Larger sizes (4, 5, 6 for kids or Large/XL for adults) are most in demand. You can ship directly to us if you prefer via our Amazon Wish List.


Let's do this! Keep Austin Diapered.

Special thanks to our media sponsor: Spirit 105.9 and Entercom Radio.

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.

    How You Can Amplify Austin Diaper Bank 2016! #AmplifyATX

    Tuesday March 8th at 6 pm to Wednesday March 9th at 6 pm is Amplify Austin, a 24-hour period of giving to local non-profits. Last year, Amplify Austin raised over $7 million and this year's goal is $9 million, all for great causes that are right here in our area.
    Austin Diaper Bank's goal in 2014 was to get its own space and we were able to, due to the great response from the community. During Amplify Austin 2015, we raised $10,000 and were able to double our space to 700 sq. ft. This space has allowed us to gather 210,000 diapers in 2015 alone! We are proud to have served over 45 agencies and over 5,000 people- all with volunteers in our little space. As you can see, it's mighty full!
    Our goal for Amplify Austin in 2016 is to grow the bank by raising enough money ($12,000) to get a warehouse and outfit it with shelving. If we do, we would have enough room to safely store more diapers, allow more volunteers to work and double the number of people we serve. It's a bargain when you think that nearly 4,000 more people in Central Texas can get the help they desperately need. We ask members in the community who can afford to give: give generously to end a silent crisis that is utterly preventable with just a bit of money and effort. Diaper need in Austin can be crushed with kindness. Fundraise for ADB here with a few social media posts that we provide you and give for Amplify here. You can even schedule your gift now so you don't have to remember later. Thank you for your support!

    Our Biggest Diaper Drive Ever: 8,800 Diapers From Premiere Dance Center



    We love the holidays for lots of reasons, but for diaper bank purposes, the holidays mean a boatload of diapers come into the bank. Diapers come from all sorts of places: nice parents cleaning out their baby's closet, kind souls who send them via our Amazon Wish List, sweet folks who go out to the store and buy them and amazing people who host a diaper drive. Premiere Dance Center, on 290 West, just concluded the largest diaper drive we've ever had and they netted nearly 9,000 diapers. That's enough to diaper 150 kiddos for a week! Thanks to Premiere Dance and their great patrons for helping us to Keep Austin Diapered!
