We Don’t Have a Supermarket Here. We’d Don’t Have a Babies R Us Here… #hamo

This week Rookie Mom Heather came with me to visit one of our partner agencies in San Francisco, the Bayview Mission. Heather and I helped hand out bags filled with diapers, toiletries, and children’s books to local residents who come to the mission for their food pantry.

And we interviewed Reverend Nina Pickerrell:

Bayview started their diaper program in 2008. Due to lack of funds, they could only distribute 10 diapers to each family, once a month. It’s because of the generosity of friends like YOU that we’ve been able to work with agencies like Bayview Mission and now they are distributing 35 diapers twice a month!

Lots of thanks to Heather for volunteering and also for holding her own diaper drive, which is benefiting our east bay program.

Inspired to act? You can help us continue our diaper program by making a monetary donation here, or if you prefer, ship diapers directly to us through our wishlist, or in person.
