What is it?
In 2011, Arkansas Rice Depot distributed over 400,000 diapers to families in need across Arkansas.
We continue to learn of families who are struggling to provide adequate diapers for their children,
being forced to make decisions between purchasing diapers and other necessities. That's a
decision no parent should have to make. Because of your help the 2011 Diaper Drive was a
huge success, collecting more than 67,000 diapers!
Preparations for the 2012 Diaper Drive are underway! Once again we will be partnering with Liz
Massey and Today's THV to bring awareness to this cause. There will be 3 televised drives around
Central Arkansas during July. See below for details on when and where drives will take place.
Diapers can be dropped off at these Walmart locations beginning the Friday before the live
televised collection day the following Tuesday. On Tuesday Liz and her team will gather to cover
the success of that drive and highlight stories of both those who give and those who have been
blessed by the donations.
This year our goal is to collect 100,000 diapers through the Diaper Drive and we need your help!
We are inviting all those who have helped to make the Diaper Depot a success to consider
holding a drive. Get your church, community organization or business involved to help keep
Arkansas babies in need healthy and well.
Please contact us at 501.565.8855 or email@example.com with any questions. We look forward to another successful drive in 2012! Thanks for partnering with us.
