Voice for Life in the Fall 2015- Diaper and Baby Supplies Drive

Hello!

The Johns Hopkins University Voice for Life is hosting a Diaper and Baby Supplies Drive to benefit Pregnancy Center North in Baltimore, MD. The Pregnancy Center North is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit medical clinic providing free life-affirming services to pregnant women since 1982. Our project consists of collecting diapers (especially needed sizes 1 and 2) and baby toiletries, including baby wash, baby lotion, diaper cream and baby wipes. The items will be collected on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus from November 2nd to December 4th.

According to The National Diaper Bank Network, every year in the United States, 1 in 3 families struggle to afford diapers for their young child or children. With 22% of all children under 5 years old living in poverty, 34% of families surveyed made the difficult decision to cut back on basics such as food, utilities, or child care in order to purchase diapers for their child. The goal of this diaper drive is to help the local Baltimore families in need by collecting diapers and baby toiletries to keep every child clean, dry, and healthy and to make this a project that not only collects supplies but also raises awareness about the need of more drives like this one to support local families. We also would like to raise awareness in our community about Pregnancy Center North in Baltimore, MD as a place of support and comfort for struggling families so that they know that we are here to help.

To this end, the Johns Hopkins University Voice for Life club is requesting your assistance in making our project a success. Below please check out our event flyers and help us keep Baltimore babies clean, dry and healthy!

If you would like to donate a large quantity of items, we have found the best deals on Boxed.com for diapers and baby supplies. Please click here to see what our greatest need for the drive is.

We will be hosting a collection on the Homewood campus on Thursday, December 3rd at the Levering Courtyard from 10:30am to 3pm. 

We greatly appreciate your kind attention and your help!

Yours truly,

Johns Hopkins Voice for Life
