What is a “diaper drive”?
A diaper drive is like a food drive, only with diapers. The diaper drive can be a few days or a few weeks, depending on the nature of the organization hosting the drive. During that time, people bring their diaper donations and place them in the collection box, usually located in a central location, such as a lobby or office.
Diaper Drives are our biggest source of diaper donations.
Organize a diaper drive? It sounds involved and complicated…
Actually, organizing a diaper drive is fairly simple.
1. Get permission from the school, church or business.
2. Work with your organization to set the dates for the drive. The dates can be for a week or a month, or any other time frame that will work best for your organization.
3. Promote the diaper drive with posters, flyers, letters, emails, newsletter or bulletin announcements – whatever communication works best for your organization. This part isn’t so hard because we can help! We have some flyers you can modify with the dates and location of the diaper drive. We also have sample letters and announcements that you can use.
4. Collect diapers. We can provide a collection box for you and at the end of the drive, you can drop off the diapers off or we will be glad to pick up the donations.

Where will the diapers go?
We believe that neighbors should support their own neighbors. Therefore, Nestlings Diaper Bank will donate diapers in the communities where diaper drives are held. We are well established in Ottawa County and work with over a dozen agencies here.
I own/manage my own business. Is there a way my business can partner with The Nestlings Diaper Bank?
Yes, we are always looking for creative ways to encourage our local community to get involved. Contact us and we’ll work together on a plan
