DIAPERS FOR BABIES
We are part of the National Diaper Bank
Walk the Walk Foundation is part of the National Diaper Bank Network, helping many organizations with their diaper donations.
Our Diapers for Babies Program now supports twelve distribution partners across Anne Arundel County.
What We Do
Over the past year, the Walk the Walk Foundation has been able to help many organizations with diaper donations. We organize the diapers we receive, repackage them into groups of twenty-five, and then give them to local non-profits, food, baby pantries, and shelters, who then distribute the diapers to families who need them. We are excited to be able to help the community in this way.
Walk the Walk Foundation is not a direct service provider but we have several diaper pantry partners to whom we provide diapers on a monthly basis, you can view our pantries, host a diaper drive, or drop off diapers on the button links below:
