Host a drive - The possibilities are endless!
A simple Product Drive has the potential to help hundreds of babies and families.
Become a local hero by helping hundreds of babies and families in your community. Hosting a drive, whether in person or virtually with family members, a few friends, or coworkers, can help spread the word about our work and be a fun way to engage. Grab a helpful hand or two and get started!
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. Wondering what we need most? Check out our Amazon Wishlist!
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? Make it a party and ask folks to bring a pack of diapers as their admission fee. If you’re looking to do a virtual drive, we’d be happy to help you set up a private page to share with your audience, or feel free to use our Amazon Wishlist for your convenience.
