The 2022 Cambridge MLK DAY

CELEBRATION OF SERVICE AND LEARNING

Lead a Diaper Drive

You can make a difference

Thank you for helping to collect diapers! 

 
Each year volunteers collect dozens of  diapers for families and individuals in our communities.

A daily average of 10 to 12 diapers over the first month of a baby’s life means that a baby may go through around 300 or so diapers in the first month of life!

Diaper donations are incredibly important this year as our community continues to struggle with the pandemic.

About Diaper Drives In Cambridge

Diapers are not covered by food assistance programs including WIC and SNAP. Diapers are in constant demand at food pantries and they often run out.

1 in 3 U.S. families experience diaper need.
When families do not have access to clean diapers, babies are exposed to potential health risks. They are also less likely accepted to daycares, leaving parents unable to attend work.
