Today the Diaper Bank is 2! | April 12, 2011

     


Today is our 2-year Anniversary!

Since launching on April 12, 2009, the Detroit Area Diaper Bank has distributed 434,527 diapers and incontinence supplies for our neediest neighbors through partner nonprofit and state agencies.

We could not have done this without all of our donors and supporters, so we want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to everyone who has embraced our community Diaper Bank and helped us grow so quickly. Together, we really are making a difference with diapers in Metro Detroit!
     


We have so many donors to thank, I’m afraid of leaving someone out — so let me just say THANK YOU to all of the individual donors, those that donated money as well as those who donated diapers – every single donation makes a HUGE difference for us, so THANK YOU for supporting the Detroit Area Diaper Bank! Also THANK YOU to everyone who ran and/or participated in a diaper drive or fundraiser or recognized the Diaper Bank with a grant or award. And thanks to the local businesses and community organizations that are supporting us and helping us grow in Southeast Michigan. We’re so grateful to have so many people taking an interest in and believing in our mission. We’re also extremely thankful to our Board of Directors and great volunteers like Bruce Will.


Please be sure to visit our website to find out what’s new and happening with the Diaper Bank!

As you start to plan next year’s activities for your community organization, club, school, office, or place of worship, please be sure to keep the Diaper Bank in mind as your benefitting charity! We would truly appreciate the support.

And it’s never too early to start thinking about and planning for our next big Fall Diaper Drive, too — from August 1st through Thanksgiving, we’ll need to have as many diaper drives and fundraisers happen as possible to meet what will undoubtedly be a challenging goal. We’ve not only met, but exceeded, the last two years’ goals, so we may just need to aim even higher this year!

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!
