DCDB by the Numbers in 2013
The results are in, and they are knock-your-socks-off impressive! Here are our final tallies for 2013 – drum roll, please:
61 – the number of diaper drives held throughout our area – that’s more than one a week!
352,100 – the number of diapers collected and distributed to local families in need – that makes 650,000 to date!
110 – intrepid volunteers – that’s not including all our littlest volunteers
550 – volunteer hours logged
1,700 – babies who receive diapers each month
18 – community partners – look for this to grow soon
2,200 – the number of diaper plastic packs recycled – that’s 20 square feet of plastic kept out of landfills!
Phew! That’s a lot of time, talent and tushies – and we couldn’t have done it without you. A big thanks to everyone who donated, volunteered, and helped to spread the word about DC Diaper Bank last year.
Here’s to a record-setting 2014!
