As a small nonprofit run by local families, we need volunteers! We are seeking volunteers in the following areas:
- diaper collection
- diaper wrapping
- diaper drive planning and execution
- event planning
- community liaison
If you are interested in donating your time and talent, please contact us via the contact us form. We are hoping to work with individuals from all backgrounds and all walks of life to work together to wipe-out diaper need in our community. Thank you!!
Diaper donations are repackaged for monthly distribution to partner organizations in Western North Carolina and, in emergency cases, those partners are able to request emergency supplies from us.
Financial donations are mostly used to purchase diaper and diaper supplies for distribution to families with diaper needs, through community partners. As a nonprofit diaper bank, we are usually able to purchase diapers at a much lower price than retail prices. We are a volunteer organization, so we have minimal operating expenses but some of the financial donations go toward those expenses also.
In March 2018, thanks in part to our donors, we were approved for our 501(c)(3) status with the IRS.
We welcome all brands of diapers you are interested in donating and we really appreciate all donations.
Sorry, but we are not currently accepting or distributing adult diapers because our focus is on families with infants & toddlers.
Yes, please do. We know that many kids grow out of diapers and may leave you with extras. We accept open packages that you no longer need, as long as they are clean & dry. We repackage all diapers for our community partners.
Yes, please! For families with preferences for cloth diapers, we hope you will consider donating cloth diapers and cloth diaper supplies. We are looking for donations of the following:
- cloth diaper liners
- cloth diaper covers
- wet bags
- laundry soap
Absolutely! We are always looking for supplies to go along with the diapers that we distribute. We accept unopened diaper creams and wipes. We are also always accepting cloth diaper supplies, including wet bags and liners.
Yes, in most cases donations are tax-deductible. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the IRS. Our EIN (Federal Tax ID) # is 82-3574436. Please consult a tax professional to determine whether your specific circumstances allow a tax deduction.
