Corona Virus Update
The Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank is committed to supporting our community in the safest way possible. As with any crisis, our most vulnerable citizens feel the greatest impact. Rest assured that our mission to end diaper need will remain firmly in place with regular distributions continuing to our community. Diapers are considered an essential service and we will continue to distribute diapers through our “Boots on the Ground” Campaign.
We are limiting the contact we have with the diapers before we send them to families in need. Our primary goal is the health and well-being of the families we serve, our staff, volunteers and our community. For the latest information on COVID-19 and how to stay safe, please visit the CDC website at cdc.gov/covid19. For now, all of our deliveries and pickups of diapers to our partner agencies are continuing. Our priority is to continue our vital mission of meeting the critical need of at-risk children while following safety guidelines and reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Suspending In-Kind Donations
In response to corona virus (COVID-19), Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank is limiting our donation from the community. We are still accepting corporate donations and donations from our Amazon Wish list, but we are suspending in-kind donations we cannot accept any baby gear, clothing, toys, and used books at this time. We serve many children with complex medical issues, grandparents raising grandchildren, and other high risk populations. We have made this decision in order to continue to meet the needs of the families we serve and keep everyone safe and healthy during this time.
Cancel Volunteer Repackaging Events
Mindful of the ever-evolving news about Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and given what we know about the importance and effectiveness of social distancing to slow the spread we have made the decision to cancel all volunteer repackaging events. We will continue to serve our clients and partner agencies during this time. We do need YOU to stand with us to continue our work. Things are going to get tougher and we could use you with us. Here at the Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank our job is to support the health and well-being of families in our community. The safety of our staff, volunteers, partners, families, and friends of the Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank is of utmost importance to us. We thank you for your continued commitment to our mission — to help all families thrive – and for working with us day in and day out to help all babies grow up healthy and happy!
