Basic Needs Drives
Hold A Diaper Drive Or Period Drive
Holding a diaper drive or period drive is a great way to support Healthy Steps! It replenishes our quickly diminishing inventory while also sharing our mission with others who may not have heard of us before.
It’s easy to hold a basic needs drive! Invite a few friends over for coffee, and each friend brings an item. Place a box at your work and collect donations from co-workers and customers. Ask for diapers in lieu of presents at your next celebration. Before you know it, you’ll have collected hundreds of diapers or period products! Anyone can hold a drive:
- Schools (a great community service project!)
- Social organizations and clubs (book clubs, moms’ groups)
- Youth groups
- Sports teams
- Businesses and business organizations
- You, your family and friends
We also have an Amazon Wish List making Virtual Drives easy to host! Share the link to our Amazon Wish List with your group so they can shop from the comfort of their home. They simply add items from our Wishlist to their cart and at checkout, they select Healthy Steps from the list of possible shipping addresses. Items will be delivered directly to us. Don’t forget to remind your group to include their name and the organization in their gift note! At the conclusion of your drive, we’ll let you know how many items were donated virtually.
If you would like to hold a drive, email Rebecca at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rebecca can share information and signs to help with your drive as well as coordinate a time to get the donation.
While we are grateful for all sizes of children diapers and training pants, we are most in need of sizes 5 and 6 at this time. We are also most in need of tampons if you are considering a period drive.
