Where do the donated diapers go?
The diapers you bring for your Diaper Dash Entry Fee are--throughout the year--given in our community to those in need. Families, single parents, teen moms, service agencies, and organizations thank YOU for participating and for donating diapers.
A Look at the Impact
“Being a teenage mother is a very rigorous task. It takes strength, faith, intelligence, patience, and support. Having community support such is huge as they have felt judged, rejected, and/or feeling as though nobody cares…An outsider may see assistance with diapers as trivial, but to these girls it has been an enormous support. They have all been extremely grateful and some have sighed with relief. They all recognized that someone cared.”
