A Little Goes A Long Way
For the price of a daily cup of coffee, you can help under resourced families meet their most basic needs.
Donations Via PayPal & Credit Card
Every dollar we receive directly supports our diaper distribution program, which provides over 1,000,000 free diapers to families in need every year via our on-site diaper bank and mobile diaper pantry. Although we give them away, we purchase 80% of the diapers for our program. We rely on fundraising events, diaper drives, grants and cash donations to fulfill our mission of ensuring that every child has enough diapers. Donations do more than just put diapers on a shelf in our warehouse--they make a real and lasting impact in the lives of over 1,800 Lake County children each month. "Changing" the world starts with you.
Donations Via Snail Mail
Monetary donations make it possible for us to continue providing specific sizes and quantities of diapers that we can’t always count on from diaper drives alone. We can purchase diapers for less than half of retail cost, which means that your donation is essentially doubled.
Ask about our monthly and planned giving options.
Donations Via Amazon and Target
No time to shop? Skip the store by shopping online using our "wish lists" at Amazon and Target to have your gift shipped directly to our office! Through the Amazon Smile program, a portion of your purchase will also be donated to Keeping Families Covered!
