Each year we dive into the data in order to compile a comprehensive report for our donors and partners. It’s a good way to let us see what we accomplished as well as what we need to work on for the next year.
We shipped a lot of diapers, over 12,000, in 2016 to more than 500 families and babies. While this is not a huge jump in families served it is more than we shipped to in 2015. We also shipped to the majority of those families in a shorter amount of time than in previous years thanks to the quick help of our donation partners Thirsties and Kelly’s Closet.
In 2016 we also celebrated our 5 year Anniversary, making us the longest continually running national cloth diaper bank in the US.
The donations given by families were so heartwarming this year, letting us know that our bank is making a difference and supporters value what we are able to do.
We will continue to need your help to serve 500 or more families in the coming year so please consider donating.
