Host A Drive

Getting your church group, school group, neighborhood, family, friends, or co-workers together to host a drive for the Diaper Bank is a great way to get involved in our work.

You can help St. Louis families by hosting a physical, online or hybrid diaper drive. We distribute about 250,000 diapers and 65,000 period supplies a month, so your help is needed now more than ever!

There is no one way, blueprint or rules to host a drive. Simply pick a time frame for your drive, set a goal for what you want to collect (we always need training pants and tampons), maybe a theme, and announce your drive. That’s it!

Register your drive below and schedule a time to drop the diapers and/or period supplies off at the warehouse. Questions, concerns, or need a brainstorming session – reach out to our Community Engagement Manager, Jerrica at

  • STEP ONE: Decide what type of drive to host

    An In-person Drive can be held at a physical location like your school, business, civic group, neighborhood or faith organization. Or get creative and host a drive for your birthday or during a holiday party. The world is yours! A Virtual Drive can be setup through Wal-Mart, Target or an Amazon wishlist or registry. We will send along directions to get you started or setup a Zoom and walk you through. A fundraiser is setup through our secure internet-based portal, DonorPerfect, and allows supporters to make monetary donations directly to us, the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank.

    STEP TWO: Tell us about it

    Tell the world about it (and send us the details below)! Announce your diaper drive through social media, newsletters, press releases to local media and post notices near the locations to donate. One of the best ways to advertise is word of mouth so be sure to talk about the drive to anyone and everyone. Tag us on social media and be sure to take pictures!

    STEP THREE: Have fun, collect & drop off

    A few things to consider for your drive: Things REALLY slow down May-August and our greatest needs are for size 4-6 in diapers, training pants and tampons. The best times to drop off are Monday – Friday between 10AM – 2PM, BUT do not hesitate to email or call for our evening and weekend schedule.
