The Barbara Hickey

​2019 Cobb Diaper Day

Make a difference in our community.



Throughout September, help us reach the goal of collecting more than 110,000 diapers for low-income families with infants and young children.We are collecting all sizes of diapers!

About the need

Join us for the Tenth Annual Cobb Diaper Day on September 30, 2019 at 5:00 PM at Glover Park on the Marietta Square.

Local agencies, such as the Center for Family Resources, liveSAFE Resources, MUST Ministries, Ser Familia, Simple Needs Georgia, and Sweetwater Mission can only dispense diapers four times a year to their clients, due to the lack of resources.

those in need


to comfort

Low-income families often have the daily stress of choosing between food and diapers. Prolonged wearing of a wet diaper causes diaper rash and a crying baby leads to more stress in the home. 

Our Mission

​In these tough economic times, low-income families face the facts that:

  •   Food stamps do not include hygiene products such as diapers.

  •   On average, the cost to purchase diapers is approximately $100/month. 

  •   Day care centers require parents to provide their own diapers.

- Declare a day in September to collect diapers from your employees, organization members or friends, or hold a diaper drive in your neighborhood. Kick-off your efforts during Diaper Need Awareness Week (Sept. 23 - Sept. 29).

- Become a sponsor.

- Call 678-296-6501 to arrange for pick-up.

- Order from Amazon and they will be directly shipped for distribution.

- Drop off your diaper donations at Glover Park on the Marietta Square on September 30, from 5-6 p.m. See the map below for directions!
