Bottom’s Up! It’s a Diaper Drive!

Arkansas No Child Wet behind

Arkansas Family Doulas is hosting their 2nd annual No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive & 5K Run on Sunday, May 7th, 2017 at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, AR from 7:30am-12noon, to support local law enforcement, women’s shelters and pregnancy crisis center across the state of Arkansas.

Arkansas Family Doulas has partnered with the North Little Rock Police Department along side other local law enforcement to inform the community that diaper need is real in the United States.  Their goal is to educate, raise awareness and get diapers donated for needy families. This local event has been so successful that this is the second year the organization will be presenting on national level. This year the event will include 30 Doula agencies from across the country through the 501c3 No Child Wet Behind.  Each agency hosting the No Child Wet Behind event will benefit families in their perspective communities. 

1 in 3 households with diaper aged children is experiencing diaper need.

Food stamps cannot be used to purchase diapers. When a family struggles to, or is not able to provide diapers for their baby, the family is affected both physically and emotionally. Programs do exist to assist families with basic necessities such as food, shelter and clothing but surprisingly, diaper need is not supported by any government program. 

For further information please visit the No Child Wet Behind tab where you can register for the 5K race, participate in the day’s activities as well as make a donation.

Arkansas Family Doulas is a full service doula agency providing labor and postpartum support to families throughout the state of Arkansas.  They have been serving families with combined experience of over a decade while providing supportive services to hundreds of families.  To learn more, visit the About tab.

The No Child Wet Behind 501c3 was created four years ago by Northeast Doulas as a give back to the community and has now blossomed into a nationally recognized event.
