Host a DriveThe possibilities are endless!
Whether held at home or workplace, individuals and groups large and small can organize a fun and simple Product Drive that has the potential to help hundreds of babies and families.
Product Drives accomplish two major tasks in our work. First- they bring in the items we need for families- baby wipes, period products, hygiene supplies, formula and of course, diapers! Second- they get people thinking and talking about the realities of parenting in poverty as they make the same purchases. (Wondering what we need most? It’s Baby Wipes!)
There’s no wrong way to host a drive- select a time and a place, promote it loud & clear (we’ll help!), and we’ll see you at the warehouse with your haul! Need Some Ideas?
