On June 25th we celebrated our One Year Anniversary and what a year it has been! We have learned, we have been humbled, we have been amazed and we have grown!
In July 2019, our first full month in operation, we distributed 7,640 diapers to 209 families at Food for Others.
Fast forward to June 2020 when we distributed 29,468 diapers to 804 families through 7 partner organizations!
Our yearly totals were 172,810 diapers in 4,648 packages!
While two thirds of our diapers are distributed through Food for Others, we are excited to be able to provide assistance to organizations working throughout Fairfax County. So many people have stepped up to provide whatever assistance they can to the many families struggling in our community.
We are so grateful that we were up and running before the pandemic hit and we are so grateful to all of our donors and supporters and everyone who believes in this mission!
We are incredibly thankful for:
*Westbriar Elementary School’s Student Council for organizing a drive to collect 5,980 diapers!
*Brownie Troop 50008 for collecting $185 in coins to donate!
*Our Lady of Good Counsel’s Christmas in July event that yielded 5851 diapers!
Our brand new website is up and running! This should make it easier for us to share updates and photos and make us easier to find! http://fairfaxdiapers.com
If you are missing the gym and want to support us and get a great workout, look for information coming soon about “Boot camp for a Cause” or send me a message for more information.
We hope that everyone is well and safe and we hope that you know how thankful we are for your continued support as we enter our second year!
