Raise Diaper Need Awareness with the Great Big Diaper Drive
Spread the word. Announce your drive via social media, emails, and notices to your specific group. Use CFBNJ’s Diaper Awareness resources, including sample messages and social media images, to share information about diaper drives and educate your family, friends, colleagues and community about diaper need. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to use CFBNJ’s Great Big Diaper Drive social media images to help raise diaper need awareness and promote your event.
The most needed items are:
- Diapers, all sizes (newborn through pullups), especially 4, 5, 6, and adult diapers
- Baby Wipes
- Baby Cream
Important Note: All items must be new and in original packaging.
Virtual Diaper Drive
Every $1 donated can provide 6 diapers for a family in need. With its enormous purchasing power, CFBNJ can procure more diapers per dollar than any individual alone. You can stretch your gift to be more impactful when you host a virtual diaper drive. In addition, some people in your community may want to skip the store and choose to support virtually.
Host a Diaper Drive
Bring your community together and host a diaper drive to collect diapers, baby wipes and baby cream. Choose central, easily accessible diaper drive drop-off locations, and then select a start and end date for your collection. Please tell us your timetable too so we know when to expect your items.
