HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

A sick child goes through 4x as many diapers as a healthy child. By providing diapers and wipes, you are taking a daily necessity off the plates of a family so they can focus on what is important - their child.

DESCRIPTION

A diagnosis of critical illness changes the life of a family in an instant. The simplest daily tasks become overwhelming when parents are faced with caring for their child during a medical crisis. There With Care of the Bay Area works with hospitals and social workers to support the entire family during emotionally, financially, and physically challenging times. Being able to bring a family donations of diapers and baby wipes help families focus on what's most important - their child.


ITEMS NEEDED

Poster board, markers, and a creative and generous spirit! You can also pick up a donation barrel and flyers at our Menlo Park warehouse.  


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Don't forget to ask permission before leaving the barrels in a designated location!
