Kyleigh’s Gift DIAPER Drive
March 22 – April 5, 2020
In honor of Kyleigh’s 8th Birthday, we are hosting a DIAPER Drive from March 22-April 5. This is our sixth year of remembering Kyleigh through the gift of DIAPERS. Over 75,000 DIAPERS have been collected since the DIAPER Drive began in 2015. We continue to be amazed year after year as so many join together to donate DIAPERS! Can we surpass 100,000 DIAPERS with this year’s donations? We think we can!
We are excited to announce a change in this year’s DIAPER Drive! All size NEWBORN and size ONE DIAPERS will stay right here, where Kyleigh’s Gift has the biggest impact … Liberty Hospital Birthing Center!
In January 2020, Liberty Hospital Foundation ~ Kyleigh’s Gift began a Diaper Assistance Program for patients at Liberty Hospital Birthing Center. Patients who live in Clay, Platte, Clinton, Caldwell and Ray County and receive or qualify for assistance through a variety of agencies, are eligible to receive a one-time bundle of 75 DIAPERS, in either newborn or size 1. These DIAPERS are sent home with newborns to help get them through the first month of DIAPER need. Please note that DIAPERS used for newborns while in the Birthing Center do not come from this DIAPER Drive or Liberty Hospital Foundation~Kyleigh’s Gift.
All newborn and size one DIAPERS from the DIAPER Drive will benefit the Diaper Assistance Program. All other sizes collected, from size 2 through Pull-Ups, will be distributed to social service agencies in the Kansas City Metro area, giving us the opportunity to reach outside of the hospital walls. All DIAPERS collected will help infants and toddlers stay clean, healthy and happy!
One in five Kansas City area children live in poverty. Within this area, an estimated 23,000+ children do not receive the DIAPERS they need. Infants and toddlers who have access to clean, fresh DIAPERS are healthier and happier. Help us collect DIAPERS of all sizes, from newborn to Pull-Ups! Opened packages are accepted at drop-off locations.
Join us for this year’s DIAPER Drive, March 22-April 5, to honor Kyleigh on her birthday and to help provide this basic health need for so many infants and toddlers.
