On Saturday August 3rd and Sunday, August 4th, 2019, the Junior League of Charleston Diaper Bank will host its third summer diaper drive to collect diapers, baby wipes and monetary donations for area families experiencing financial strains. After the weekend drive, the Junior League of Charleston (JLC) will accept donation drop-offs through Saturday, August 10th.
JLC volunteers will be on-site Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm, and Sunday from 12 pm to 4 pm, at three area Harris Teeter locations to collect donations:
- Belle Hall Shopping Center (620 Long Point Road, Mt. Pleasant)
- St. Andrews (975 Savannah Hwy., St. Andrews Shopping Center, Charleston)
- Oakpoint (675 Folly Road, Oakpoint Center, Charleston)
In addition to the weekend drive, other area businesses will also serve as donation drop-off locations from August 3rd through August 10th:
- Marshall Walker Real Estate (582 Rutledge Ave, Charleston)
- News 2 (210 West Coleman Blvd, Mount Pleasant)
- College of Charleston – Stern Center (71 George St, Charleston)
- Barre Code (1440 Ben Sawyer Blvd. Suite 1500, Mount Pleasant)
The Junior League of Charleston Diaper Bank, which collects, packages and works with community partner organizations to distribute diapers to the community, launched in 2017 as a way to address the growing need of diaper assistance for families in the Lowcountry. Due to various restrictions, diapers are not funded by government-based assistance programs, such as WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Without this financial assistance, many families are unable to afford and change their children’s diapers as often as needed, which can then lead to health problems.
This summer’s diaper drive marks the third consecutive year of the fundraiser, and the JLC hopes it will not only bring in ample donations, but also serve as an opportunity to continue to educate the community and draw awareness to this growing need.
In addition to the annual diaper drives, the JLC encourages schools and local businesses to host their own drives to increase awareness of the Diaper Bank and its mission throughout the Lowcountry.
