September Diaper Drive Kickoff & Fast Facts About Diaper Need
Social4Good is excited to announce that we will once again sponsor a diaper drive for Fairfax Diapers in September. Just like food, the need for diapers has grown exponentially in our area since March and Fairfax Diapers is working harder than ever to meet the need.
S4G's goal last year was to collect 10,000 diapers and our members proved their generosity exceeding the goal by 70%...we donated 17,000 diapers!
This year’s project includes a diaper collection or monetary donation. We have again set a goal of 10,000 diapers, understanding that this is a different year and different time. All contributions are greatly appreciated!
We will collect diapers in sizes 3, 4, 5, and 6 beginning today and continuing through September 26. If you're unsure what size to purchase, there is always a big need for sizes 5 & 6. There are numerous ways to contribute, choose what fits your budget and desire to get involved:
Purchase diapers and email email@example.com for a convenient drop off location before September 24 or 26. The best values are the largest packs of Parent's Choice Diapers at Walmart ($35) and Up&Up at Target ($29).
Contribute money directly throughAct Blueand we will purchase the diapers for you. Act Blue automatically generates a tax receipt and your contribution will be noted as S4G.
Contribute directly to Christine Kenny via Venmo at christine-kenny-75492 and we will purchase the diapers for you. Please indicate S4G as we are tracking our success!
Social4Good members are invited to sort and package diapers at a socially distanced, small group session on September 24. Check your email for a link to the signupgenius or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
