I think one of the first thing that usually comes to mind when we are thinking about babies is diapers. They are a necessity and as we all know can get quite expensive very fast. I am sure my crazy girls have gone through at least a million diapers, or it at least seems like it!
I was really excited to learn about Huggies® Every Little Bottom program. Since it started in 2010 they have donated more than 80 million diapers to babies in need and have diapered more than 13 million babies in need for a day.
In honor of National Diaper week Huggies® gave me the opportunity to donate a big box of diapers provided by them to a location in need.
I called my Local food bank to get some feedback from them on where would be a good place to donate the diapers. They mentioned that they except diapers and, have done successful diaper drives in the past and that they would make sure they went to people in need.
So I scooped up my two little ones and the case of diapers and I was on my way. I loved the sweet questions I got from my four year old about where we were taking the diapers. She was glad to know while holding her own baby doll, that other babies in need would be able to have diapers given to them. I was happy to share this experience with her.
The Utah Food bank was so helpful. I went into the center to donate, but they also had a drive up area. That makes donations super easy. They let me tour the facility and talked to me about the importance of donating and all the people that the warehouse helps. It was pretty humbling and my mind was spinning about how I can include my whole family in a service project in the near future.
I think it is easy to overlook diaper needs in this nation. I was shocked to learn from Huggies® that one in three U.S moms suffer from diaper need, Also that not having enough diapers can be as stressful as not having enough food for your family.
