A friend invited me to LA Diaper Drive's annual poker tournament. I had a great time and was happy to contribute to the cause. While I was there I learned a lot about diaper need. I was shocked to learn that 1 in 3 mothers struggle to keep their babies diapered and often are making choices between putting food on the table and clean diapers. I wondered, "why not use cloth diapers?" One of the volunteers at the event explained to me that many low income families don't have laundry machines in the house and laundry-mats don't allow you to clean soiled diapers in their facilities. In addition, day cares require disposable diapers. In order for the mother to work, she needs to be able to leave her child with a full day supply. It also impressed me that this charity doesn't just give handouts. They use the diapers as incentive to get the low income mothers into classes that will improve their lives. They seem to be trying to break the cycle of poverty. Kudos to LA Diaper Drive.
We are so lucky to have been connected with LA Diaper Drive. Their amazingly dedicated and organized team has helped us be able to provide diapers to so many of the families that we serve. We feel deeply honored to work with this organization and hope to continue doing so for many years to come.
I saw a video online of Caroline Kunitz pitching Los Angeles Diaper Drive to win a grand (which she did) and that was the moment I knew I have to get involved!
One person - changing the lives of so many mothers and babies in need.
She surrounded herself with amazing volunteers and is now the largest diaper bank in the country.
The need for diapers is endless and not many people are aware of the fact that every 3rd mother can't provide enough clean diapers for her baby.
LA Diaper Drive is needed so badly and I'm very proud to volunteer my time to this non profit organization!
Changing the world by changing one baby at a time!
LA diaper Drive is one of my favorite charities. I was first won over by its founder, Caroline Kunitz. She is an inspiration. I am always amazed by the impact of one person's motivation to do something more for this world. She balances a busy life with her philanthropic work, and sends a message that all it takes is a vision and a good heart. Subsequently she dedicates countless hours and hard work, which in turn motivates her volunteers. It has been amazing watching her build this worthy initiative from the ground up. As a volunteer this year, I always felt like a valued member of the team!! LADD is very inclusive. And its associates, board members, and fellow volunteers are genuinely kind and friendly. Makes working together a pleasure, and creates a fantastic environment. Lastly, the charity itself speaks to my heart. The formula is so simple and yet the impact is profound. For me it is about Los Angeles mothers helping Los Angeles mothers. As a young mom myself, in the throws and pressures that come along with little ones, I can all too well recognize the great needs LADD meets. They are truly making a very real difference. With all of their associated partner organizations, LADD is so much more than an independent diaper donator. But they sure are good at getting the job done!
We are a nonprofit health organization that serves 700 clients in the LA county area every month. Our Case Managers over seen the teen population who are pregnant or parenting and have a big the need for diapers. The LA Diaper Drive with their diaper donations allows us to address this need and help create an environment of trust. The staff is a great team to work with and easy to reach if you have any questions. We depend greatly on The LA Diaper Drive to continue our mission and support services to our clients. Thank you LA Diaper Drive
I am a non profit that serves 500 teen parents in the Compton area each month. The LA Diaper Drive provides diapers to teen parents who are unable at time to purchase diapers. When Case Managers give diapers to their clients it builds a strong relationship and shows that the Case Manager cares. This is a great needed resource for our organization.
Powered by compassion and enthusiasm, L.A. Diaper Drive provides diapers for babies and toddlers in need.
Our organization, Enlightened Helping Hand Foundation, serves disadvantaged single parent families. The diapers provided to us by L.A. Diaper Drive aren’t given to struggling single mothers to enable complacency, but as an incentive to attend our self-sufficiency workshops.
Kudos to L.A. Diaper Drive! A noble mission carried out with grace by a noble organization.
L.A. Diaper Drive is an amazing organization. TLC is a non profit program that provides service to children birth to five with developmental disabilites, visual impairments and blindness. L.A. Diaper Drive provides our agency with diapers which in turn, are provided to low income families when they attend a family group or community event. This benefit has helped so many families that otherwise would have to decide to put food on their table or purchase diapers. In addition, these families are getting connected, making friends and discovering new resources in their community. The staff are amazing as is the service. We are so thankful for the opportunity to collaborate together to help families in need.
I recently attended a Poker Night event to benefit the LA Diaper Drive and was amazed at the organization and creativity of the staff. This sold-out event drew guests from near and far and was so much fun! Even though my husband and I didn't really know how to play poker, the event had dealers on hand to teach us the game. We played until the wee hours of the morning.
What's also great about this organization is how focused they are on their mission. Diapers, specifically. Hearing how something many parents take for granted is in short-supply was eye-opening. After hearing about their mission, I dropped off diapers to their offices and met some of the staff. They are such warm, caring and awesome people!
