Making a monthly contribution ensures that families have access to a lifestyle that is sustainable and healthy for years to come. Donors make the mission of the Covered With Love Diaper Bank possible and carry the impact made for the thousands of individuals the Covered With Love Diaper Bank serves.
Why Donate to us?
When you donate to the Covered With Love Diaper Bank, almost 98 cents of every dollar donated goes directly toward our programs.
Donating is Easy
If you want to give the biggest “bang” for your hard earned “buck”, consider donating to Covered With Love through Network for Good. Covered With Love can use the donation to purchase diapers at a fraction of the cost from our network of suppliers.
If you have diapers, wipes, or hygiene products that you wish to donate, please call first and then drop off your donation at our main office location during normal business hours.
Become a Diaper Angel and sign up as a partner to make recurring monthly donations to help ensure that the diaper bank always has diapers in the sizes and quantities needed.
Do you want to be more involved than just making a donation? Why not take part in one of Covered With Love’s volunteer experiences?
Diaper Bank ambassador
If you have a little time to spread the word, why not consider being an ambassador? Be a voice for children and families in our community today!
The Covered With Love Diaper Bank is looking for ambassadors in our coverage area to help spread the word of this important work by sharing stories and information about our mission and work with local businesses, clubs, schools, churches, religious organizations or groups, other communities, etc. as well as calling, emailing, or through social media.
This is a great way to meet other individuals, business owners, church pastors/youth leaders, preschool/daycare owners in your community as well as teach your own children or grandchildren about the importance of volunteering and community engagement. You can accomplish this all while providing a much needed basic resource to hundreds of families in need.
Covered With Love will help you with the tools you need to make a connection. In addition, if you are willing, but certainly not required, you can collect diapers for families by serving as a drop off location in your neighborhood.
Provide community awareness by helping us address diaper need in our communities through social media, business support requests, or available grants.
CWL Diaper Bank Ambassador Commitment:
- Minimum 1 year commitment
- Complete Ambassador training
- Serve as your neighborhood contact for the CWL Diaper Bank, promoting your location and coordinating drop-offs with donors (if applicable)
- Spread the word about the urgent need for diapers for families in our community
- Have fun

Host a Diaper Drive
Do you want to understand families? Hosting a diaper drive is a great way to donate diapers and spread awareness of the diaper gap, plus it is fun and easy!
Diaper drives can be where you work, at your church, through your clubs, sports teams, or even at your child’s school and many other places.
Choose a theme and you can make it a contest. Whatever works for you. Let us know you are holding a diaper drive and we will feature it on our website and social media outlets. When your diaper drive is over, simply contact us and we will come and pick up the diapers if you are not able to deliver them.
Do you need a few suggestions? Why not try one of these?
- A central collection area decorated with baby items is a great way to keep the drive in everyone’s mind. A playpen, crib, or large box covered in baby gift wrap works great.
- Challenge another class, grade, or even another school or youth group, or even church youth groups to collect diapers. Have the teacher/principal or youth leader/pastor challenge students to meet the diaper goal.
- A diaper drive is a great project for students to start learning goal setting, organization, marketing skills, and community involvement.
- Use the concepts of poverty and philanthropy in your lesson plans. Discuss the cost of raising a family, minimum wage, the cost of diapers and other necessities as part of a family budget, the importance of education, and making a positive difference in their community.
- Teach children how they can make a difference in the life of someone they don’t even know, the importance of community involvement, serving others and mission involvement/support.
- Don’t forget to advertise your diaper drive in newsletters and bulletins as well as posters and social media.
- Have a targeted drive for each class or youth group for diapers of different sizes. Have First Graders collect size 1, Second Graders collect size 2, etc. This will help us collect diapers in all sizes needed in the community. Don’t forget newborn size and pull-ups. A Kindergarten / Preschool classes or church nursery could collect these sizes.
- Get your workplace or business involved.
- Get your faith based organization, church, Sunday school class, and/or other youth group involved.
- Get your sports teams, clubs, sorority, fraternity, Scouting groups involved.
- Get your neighborhood involved or make it a neighborhood block party.
- Get your civic group involved.
- Get your friends and family involved (make it a party).
- In lieu of gifts at a birthday party, baby shower, or Christmas party, ask for packages of diapers to be donated.
- Consider a Christmas charity donation.
- Have a Christmas party and collect diapers.
- Have your friends offer an hour or so babysitting service one night for parents to complete their holiday shopping and charge a package of diapers per child.
- Cash donations collected through your diaper drive are greatly appreciated. Covered With Love purchases diapers in bulk from our supplies which gives us greater purchasing power.
