6th Annual Stuff the Buss Diaper Drive Kick-Off!

September 18, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Diapers are an expensive necessity. 1 in 3 families struggle with “diaper need” or the inability to provide enough diapers to keep their baby clean and dry. Since 2015, Bundles of Hope is the only non-profit solely focused on consistently and reliably meeting this basic need in our community. To date we have distributed 2.2 million diapers. During the pandemic we have seen need increase by 300% and didn’t close for a single day distributing up to 100,000 diapers/month during the shutdown.

Our 6th Annual Stuff the Bus Diaper Drive sponsored by Medical Properties Trust will be located on Hwy 280 on the gravel easement below the Target Shopping Center with kick-off to the 10-day drive taking place at 6pm Friday, Sept 18th. This event will run in conjunction with Diaper Need Awareness Week, proclaimed by Mayor Woodfin. Our goal is to fill the bus with 350,000 diapers and bring awareness to this often overlooked basic need. We are coordinating around 130 diaper drives throughout the community (hosted by local groups, businesses, neighborhoods, and churches). The event will be held in a drive-thru format this year to practice safe distancing. Bundles of Hope accepts diapers in new as well as opened packages and our most needed sizes are 4,5,6, & Pull-ups as well as wipes. Learn more here.
