Do not deliver to the Sharehouse
Donate diapers in all sizes to support refugee families in need. This is great to pair with a baby wipes donation. This is a great community project or Eagle Scout project! We can only accept disposable diapers and they must be in the original, unopened packaging.
Size 4-7 are highly needed.
Refugee families are often large and that means a lot of laundry each week! Support these families by donating 100-120 ounce bottles of liquid laundry detergent. We often go through 300-400 of these a week. Refugees who go to workshops benefit from these donations.Delivery Location View Images
