AWHONN CA Diaper Drive

As the second largest state with diaper need, AWHONN CA section has decided to partner with Supply Bank’s Diaper Program to help ease that need.
We launched our virtual drive at our state convention in February, and will continue this drive until the end of the year.  Each $17 donation will provide 100 diapers and 200 wipes to families enrolled in participating WIC and First 5 programs throughout Northern CA. To date, 7,018 diapers have been funded. Please help us meet our goal of raising 25,000 diapers by the end of this year, 2019.
