Community partners are critical to our success in collecting and distributing diapers to local families with diaper need. We are excited to partner with local nonprofits and businesses to help complete our mission.
If you are a local business with space for a small collection box, we’d love for you to donate the space for diaper drives or on a long-term basis. We provide a marked collection box and will pickup the contents at regular intervals or anytime the box is full.
Have new or surplus diapers and unopened wipes to donate? Drop them off in our donations boxes at any of locations below!

Please contact our distribution partners if you need diapers. If you are unable to obtain diapers through our partners and are in a crisis situation, please contact us.
Our community distribution partners are required to sign a partnership agreement to help insure that diapers and supplies make it to those who need them most, in an appropriate manner. Diapers and supplies are provided to our partners at no charge and must be distributed, at no charge, to client families with diaper need. They must never be sold by our partner organizations or their employees/volunteers. They must be distributed without discrimination against race, color, creed, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or disability.
If any partner agency is found to be in knowing violation of our agreement, our relationship will be immediately discontinued and they will no longer benefit from our organization.
Distribution partner organizations must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in good standing, religious organization or local government agency.
