Help a Mother Out is a local non-profit that provides diapers to low-income families. Volunteers come to the warehouse to sort through and repackage diapers in preparation for distribution to community partners in 5 Bay Area counties. This is a fun and easy volunteer opportunity for individuals and groups interested in making a direct impact on the lives of moms and babies in the Bay Area. This opportunity is for adults ages 18+ (sorry - no one under 18 is allowed in the warehouse).

A family’s access to a reliable supply of clean diapers reduces the risk of infectious disease outbreaks, improves baby’s health and comfort, and enables baby’s participation in early care and education programs. Our vision is a day when every baby has a healthy supply of diapers. Diapers cost between $80 and $100 per month. That’s $2,850 to diaper one child with regular changes until potty training-a huge expense for the over 5 million low-income families with young children living in the U.S. today. Public assistance programs like food stamps don’t cover diapers. Diapers give mothers and babies a chance.
