Donate Diapers and Change a Child's Life

Annual Baby Diaper Drive Collects Diapers and Wipes for Families in Need

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - Join Homeward Bound, Arizona's largest transitional housing provider serving homeless and domestic violence families as they embark upon the 13th Annual Baby Diaper Drive to collect diapers and baby wipes for Homeward Bound families.

As many of our community members continue to struggle financially, it is more important than ever to rally around the cause of children and their well-being. Due to the cost of diapers and baby wipes and because they cannot be purchased with food stamps, many children are forced to go without. In addition, medication, hearing aids and other health-related needs of children are often unmet. Homeward Bound's Diaper Lady team of volunteers has set the goal of collecting 100,000 diapers (larger sizes 4, 5 and 6) and $75,000 in emergency baby funds to fill the gaps and to ensure a bright, healthy future for babies and toddlers in need.

We are actively recruiting businesses, schools, service groups and individuals to participate by hosting a diaper drive. Join together with your co-workers, family or friends to make a difference in the lives of children. There are tools and resources (tip sheets, flyers and posters) available on the website. Learn how to get started today!
