donate diapers

This is where Sweet Cheeks Diaper Ministry comes in. Since 2014 we have donated over 200,000 diapers to Memphis families and our goal is to increase that number by year’s end. This is only made possible through the generous funding we have received from members of our community and the citizens of Memphis like you.  Sweet Cheeks Diaper Ministry collects diapers and monetary donations to purchase diapers from people like you. We then partner with local social service providers to distribute those diapers to families in need. When families in need go to our partnering agencies for other services – maybe food for the family, job assistance, or child care – they can also receive the gift of your diaper donation.

This year, though. we are specifically seeking donations to reach our goal of donating 100,000 diapers.  We hope that you will be able to join us in helping make our goal a reality. You can donate by hosting a diaper drive at your company or school (we will provide Diaper Drive Toolkit to help you), raise money through fundraising, or you can give directly to us via our website www.sweetcheeksdiaperministry.org.  With monetary donations, we are able to purchase diapers in bulk at a discounted rate through our partnership with Huggies and JetCares; this helps your dollar stretch further. No amount is too small! Any support will be highly appreciated by us and the kids that we provide a service to.

We also like to get the community involved! We host several diaper wrapping parties throughout the year, so volunteers can see what we do and how we’re helping mid-south families.  For more information you can visit our website or email us at.
