The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our Mission Diapers for children and adults through community partners. Our Vision A community where every diaper need is met.
We know that people and families who need diapers probably need other social services as well. Instead of reinventing another social service delivery system, we provide diapers to existing organizations that work with people in need. Our partners include: crisis nurseries, domestic violence shelters, senior centers, and congregations for a variety of religious affiliations. One task is to conve rt our community's compassion into action on behalf of those in need by increasing awareness of the issues facing vulnerable populations.
The Diaper Bank is a great example of a grassroots community service organization doing work of enormous importance right in our own community. The work done by and through the Diaper Bank impacts peoples lives for the better. It's a shining example of a small agency working cooperatively with other groups to make where we live a better place.
Volunteering at the Southern Arizona Community Diaper Bank was one of the greatest experiences I've ever had. I worked side-by-side with top management helping the Diaper Bank distribute hundreds of thousands of diapers. The Diaper Bank's volunteers are the essential bridge that provides hope for families and babies living in crisis situations. The best feeling is seeing families smile because you made a difference for them, and thousands of people just like them. You'll make many new friends and gain new leadership skills. Volunteer today at the Diaper Bank! You're going to love it!
