This September we are partnering with Helping Mamas to fill their warehouse! Helping Mamas is a non-profit that works with over 150 metro Atlanta agencies to distribute diapers to those in need.
Helping Mamas was founded by a social worker who saw a gap in services. There was no coordinated effort to collect and distribute diapers. After watching moms having to use plastic grocery bags for diapers or washout and reuse disposable diapers, she knew something needed to be done. Today, Helping Mamas serves nearly 60,000 children a year and distributes 2 million essential items to the community.

The good news is YOU CAN HELP.
Now through Sunday, September 24 we are collecting diapers. They can be open packages (think if your child has outgrown a size) or any size or brand. You can also give online (please select missions) and any money you donate will go directly to Helping Mamas.
