Donate to Diaper Dash
Written by Jillene on August 27, 2020
Pregnancy Helpline of Madison is Going the Distance to End Diaper Need! One in three families struggle to afford diapers for their babies. Diapers cannot be bought with food stamps or WIC. Pregnancy Helpline is the first and largest diaper bank in Dane County and a member of the National Diaper Bank Network. In 2019, Pregnancy Helpline distributed 150,000 diapers. On average, they serve 275 families per month.
This year, the Diaper Dash consists of a virtual run/walk and an in-person community diaper drive and t-shirt pick-up. Register online and on Saturday, September 26, pick up your race materials from 8-11AM at McKee Farms Park in Fitchburg. Bring diapers and wipes to donate! Then, run anywhere and anytime during the weekend of September 26-27. Prizes will be awarded for top fundraising and diaper donations. The cost is $30 for an individual registration, which includes a T-shirt. Family registration is $75, which includes two t-shirts.
Diapers and wipes can also be dropped off at any Madison Princeton Club location from September 8-30. All event information can be found at www.pregnancyhelpline.net.
