School and Youth Diaper Drive Ideas
A few ideas to get you started!
- A central collection area decorated with baby items is a great way to keep the drive in everyone’s mind. A playpen, crib or large box covered in baby gift wrap works great. We’ll even provide the boxes.
- Challenge another class, grade, or even another school to collect diapers. Have the teacher or principal challenge students to meet the diaper goal
- A diaper drive is a great project for students to start learning goal setting, organization, and marketing skills.
- Use the concepts of poverty and philanthropy in your lesson plans. Discuss the cost of raising a family, minimum wage, the cost of diapers and other necessities as part of a family budget, and the importance of education.
- Teach kids how they can make a difference in the life of someone they don’t even know
- Don’t forget to advertise your Diaper Drive in you school newsletters and daily bulletins.
- Have a special Diaper Drive in each class for diapers of different sizes. Have the First Graders collect size1, fourth graders size 4, etc. This will help the diaper bank collect diapers in all the sizes needed in our community
- Do a Penny Drive. Because Anchor of Hope Diaper Bank buys in bulk, we’ll count every 28 cents in cash donations as one diaper donated.
Have fun with whatever you plan!
