12 Oct COBB DIAPER DAY
Little things often make a big difference!
This year’s drive is complete, thank you so much for your donations. We collected over 7,000 diapers this year!
Cobb Diaper Day was founded by a concerned group of community leaders to raise awareness that having diapers to care for infants and children is a challenge that low-income families regularly face. To help address this need, the Junior League of Cobb-Marietta (JLCM) has partnered with the Barbara Hickey Cobb Children’s Fund to collect diapers for low-income families with infants and young children.
JLCM has participated in Cobb Diaper Day since its inception 12 years ago. Over this time, we have donated more than 75,000 diapers and provided hours of in-person support on donation day. Diapers collected have been donated to the Center for Family Resources, Communities in Schools of Georgia in Marietta/Cobb County, liveSAFE Resources, MUST Ministries, Ser Familia, 7 Bridges to Recovery, Simple Needs GA and Sweetwater Mission for distribution to help ease some of the burden of the hundreds of families with infants that enter their doors each month.
