DIAPER DONATIONS NEEDED!
Diapers are a hot commodity at Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank. They’re our lifeblood, our main currency, our holy grail–you get the idea. For 2016, we had a strategic goal of distributing 60,000 diapers to babies in the Greater Cincinnati area, and as you can tell from the counter on the main page, we more than doubled that number! For 2017 we set a goal of 400,000 diapers and ended the year sending over 461,000 out the door. What’s in store for 2018? We’re glad you asked: 600,000 clean diapers on babies. This means we need your diaper donations, and no donation is too small! Have a few random diapers left in a size your baby has outgrown? Send them our way. Want to challenge your company, school, girl scout troop, community group or other organization to collect the 50,000+ diapers we need each month for the families that depend on us? We have all the tools you need. Read on for more info.
**We are always in need of 4’s, 5’s, 6’s and all sizes of Pull-ups!**
I want to host a diaper drive.
We bow down to your awesomeness! We have compiled an entire Diaper Drive Toolkit to make the process as seamless as possible for you. Still have questions after looking through the documents below?

This handy toolkit is full of ideas for hosting a drive, tips and tricks to make it super successful, and a checklist to make sure you’ve covered everything.
This infographic gives folks a brief overview of Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank, diaper need, and what they can do to help. It’s the perfect tool to share a lot of information in a friendly way.

The goal sheet features our Sweet Cheeks mascot, Morty–the sweet little pig in our logo! Use him as a visual tracker to show how close you are to reaching your diaper drive’s goal.
Do you need to keep track of everyone who donates to your diaper drive? You can use this simple template as a starting point for collecting information on each generous participant.
Do you have any places near me where I could drop off diapers?
We are thrilled to have a partnership with the Once Upon a Child stores in the Cincinnati/Dayton area. When you have diapers you’d like to donate, stop by one of their convenient locations to drop them off. They can accept any size and any amount of disposable diapers. So when you’re dropping off to sell all the clothes your kiddos have outgrown and shop for the next season, bring those leftover diapers that don’t fit anymore too! Diapers dropped off in Cincinnati go straight to Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank, and diapers dropped off in the Dayton stores will be picked up by Hannah’s Treasure Chest.
Search for one of the locations closest to you here.
Do you know of a business or organization that would make a great diaper drop-off location? We are currently looking for locations in offices, libraries, daycare centers, etc. that are strategically placed around our city. The goal is for diaper donors to be able to drop off diapers whenever they want at a location convenient to them. Check out this flyer for more information on what being a diaper drop-off location entails, and when you’re ready to get started, contact Amy (amy@sweetcheeksdiaperbanks.
Other scenarios: I have diapers I want to donate but I’m not near a OUAC store. I have a huge donation and I’m afraid I’ll take over the whole OUAC store.
No worries! Please email our Program Manager, Jean, to coordinate the drop off of your donation at our warehouse: email@example.com
