Families, single parents, teen moms, service agencies, and organizations thank YOU for participating and for donating diapers.
Can't come to the Diaper Dash but want still to help?
Diapers can be delievered to the church
you can purchase online & have them shipped to the Hermiston Nazarene Church! 1520 W Orchard Ave
During the year, we'll gladly accept diapers you would like to donate. We will make sure these get to organizations and individuals who need them.
Any size, any brand, any quantity.
Most frequently requested sizes from those in need: 4, 5, 6, and some pull ups (though any child diaper size is greatly appreciated!!)
The route typically continues down Orchard Ave to Riverfront Park, along Oxbow Trail, along 11th St, and back to HermNaz Church.
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.”
