When Giving Diapers, Giving Hope began in 2011 Kristen and Emily were the only two women running the organization – this includes the sorting, shipping, and application approvals. They brought on Kim to help with social media and fundraising, and now all shipping is handled by the shipping department from GroVia. Together, we process about 10-20 applications and ship 8-15 packages of diapers to families a week.

Meet Our Advisory Board Members
For many years Giving Diapers, Giving Hope has received the help and advice from our Advisory Board. Our board members are not voting members but advise us as we continue to grow this orgnization to help as many families as possible cloth diaper for the cost of shipping. We cannot thank these women enough for volunteering their time and expertise.
