For this year's Diaper Need Awareness Week we set out to collect over 100,000 diapers and to raise awareness and support for #DiaperNeed in the St. Louis region. By all accounts, Diaper Need Awareness Week 2016 was a great success!
We collected over 100,000 diapers and received enough cash donations to purchase an additional 50,000. In a wrap-up article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, "St. Louis Area Diaper Bank nets 150,000 diapers during weeklong drive," Nancy Cambria outlines the results from the week's events and the direct impact this will have on local families. We are proud to confirm that about 30 organizations throughout the region held diaper drives.
THANK YOU to everyone who donated diapers, volunteered time, and offer financial support to the diaper bank during this important time. We were overwhelmed with the response!
