Did you know? The average baby uses 2,500 diapers in the first year. For some families, the cost is overwhelming.
These families are supported through the annual Diaper Drive. You can help us reach our 2016 goal of collecting 7,500 diapers!
The mission of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is to improve the quality of life for women and their families in our local community, the state of Wisconsin, and beyond. As part of that mission, our 2016 Diaper Drive will support families in need in the Madison area by collecting diapers and monetary donations during the month of August. Donations will be distributed to local organizations that support families with infants and toddlers in our community.
Once again, this year’s Diaper Drive will occur in conjunction with the Madison Mini Marathon, for which our Healthy Women, Healthy Babies Fund is the official charity partner.
In 2015, with your help, we donated 7,032 diapers to local community organozations. The 2015 Diaper Drive was held at UW Health Ob-Gyn Clinics and Meriter locations throughout the month of August.
Below is a list of where you can donate during August 2016:
