 2nd annual No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive & 5K Row

Date: Sunday, May 7th, 2017

Location: 15400 Chenal Parkway Little Rock, AR 9:00am-2:00pm (The Pharmacy at Wellington) 

Beneficiary: Local law enforcement across the state of Arkansas.

 
 

Our mission is to help raise awareness and provide families in need with clean diapers for their babies. No family should have to struggle to provide this basic need. 

1 in 3 families report a need for diapers for their children and on average an adequate supply of diapers cost around $100 a month. These families will struggle because there is no government assistance that provides diapers for the families who need them. 

Arkansas Family Doulas is passionate about bringing awareness to the need because we have learned that an inadequate supply of diapers has been linked to an increase in abuse and infanticide. 

At our 1st Annual event, May 21st, 2016, we collected over 8,000 clean diapers to distribute to families within our community. As our cause awareness has spread and we have been contacted from all corners of the state, our goals is to more than double the diaper donations so that we can support more communities like Jonesboro in northeast Arkansas, and Fayetteville and Fort Smith in northwest Arkansas. We continue to accept diaper donations throughout the year to donate to community resources such as our Partnership with the North Little Rock Police Department, the Jonesboro Police Department and the Hot Springs Police Department.  

Arkansas Family Doulas would like to thank the businesses who donated their time and offered financial support, Jenny Acs Photography, Babies 'R' Us, Wellness Revolution, Arkansas Blue and You, and Taiho-Ryu Karate & Jujitsu, as well as all the vendors, race participants, and families who donated diapers to No Child Wet Behind. 

How you can help! We need the following: 

- Volunteers to help organize

- Committee Heads

- Event Day Volunteers

- Donations

- Vendors

- And most important of them all….SPONSORS!

If you or any company you work with is looking to help families through out the state of Arkansas, this is how you can help.
