The Detroit Area Diaper Bank's Blog

Introducing our 2010 Fall Diaper Drive | September 1, 2010

Back on July 30th, this is how I announced this year’s fall diaper drive on our Facebook page:

Gearing up – 2 days until the Detroit Area Diaper Bank’s Fall Diaper Drive launches!

August 1st launches our 2nd Annual Fall Diaper Drive. As I considered what goal to set for this year, I reflected on last year — our first drive, we were just a few months old and set what was an ambitious goal for us at the time, 30,000 diapers (or funds to buy them) by Thanksgiving 2009. With great support from our community and donors, we ended up collecting over 54,000 diapers!

An expected move would be to double last year’s goal and shoot for 60,000 this year, right? But we’re all about the UNexpected here at the Detroit Area Diaper Bank so we’re not just aiming to double last year’s goal, we’re hoping to double our TAKE.

So our 2010 Fall Diaper Drive’s goal is 100,000 diapers by Thanksgiving!

Think we can do it? Yeah, me too. So get ready!

About author

The Detroit Area Diaper Bank was a 501c3 charity that provided diapers to nonprofit organizations in Southeast Michigan from 2009-2014. No federal assistance programs pay for or provide diapers, not WIC, Food Stamps or Medicare. Diapers are a huge hole in the "safety net" for our youngest and oldest neighbors in need. Please continue to donate and make a difference with diapers in Metro Detroit!
