Give Cheeks a Chance!

September is a time to get back to basics: Summer comes to a close, kids go back to school, life continues its frenetic pace—and homeless and/or low-income babies and kids continue to be in dire need of diapers and other basic supplies.

We know you’re all about helping a mother out, and now we’re asking you to take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to lend a hand—and have some fun in the process. To kick off our monthlong Give Cheeks a Chance! diaper drive, we’ve got two great events planned in Oakland and San Jose.

  • In Oakland, please join us on Sept. 9, 5–7 pm, at SadieDey’s Cafe. Bring diapers* and stay for a playdate and dinner. (Check it out: Kids eat free with purchase of adult dinner!)
  • In San Jose, join the fun on Sept. 9, 3–6 pm, at Baby Buzz. Bring diapers* and enjoy refreshments! Plus, Baby Buzz is offering 10% off same-day purchases with diaper donation.

At each location, the first 20 people to arrive with diapers will get nifty goodie bags. Plus, we’ll be raffling off swell prizes from generous local, green, and/or mama-owned companies.

* Larger-sized diapers (size 4 and up) are the most needed. This month, we’re also collecting NEW socks and underwear for children and women. Diapers and supplies will be distributed to our Northern California partner agencies.

Not in the SF Bay Area? Fret not! You can always host your own mini-drive in your own community—it’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s incredibly rewarding. Check out our diaper drive toolkit for everything you need.

Of course, you can always donate via any of our partner agencies’ Amazon wishlists, or in person at one of our drop bins.
