Disaster Relief FAQ’s
How does Miami Diaper Bank help families affected by a natural disaster?
Miami Diaper Bank provides families with diapers, wipes, and other baby essentials who are affected by natural disasters based on the funds and resources available to our organization. We collaborate with partner agencies, evacuation shelters and other nonprofits who are providing disaster relief services to ensure we are reaching families efficiently and effectively. Miami Diaper Bank also supports families throughout the recovery process as families need the extra support while they rebuild their lives and get back on their feet.
Does the Miami Diaper Bank only help families in Miami?
No. We provide assistance to families across South Florida in 6 counties: Miami-Date, Broward, Monroe, Lee, Collier, and Palm Beach.
What type of donations are you currently accepting?
Miami Diaper Bank has a disaster relief fund and accepts monetary donations through our website donation page and ActBlue Disaster Relief Fund Page. Monetary donations help during times of crises as Miami Diaper Bank has access to diapers and wipes at a special discounted rate through our membership in the JetCares program and the National Diaper Bank Network so your donation goes the extra mile. Thanks to the JetCares Program, we can order diapers and wipes online and get them sent to families as quickly and efficiently as possible with their free 2 day shipping. To learn more about the JetCares program click here.
Are you accepting diaper donation shipments?
We currently do not have the capacity to accept donations of packs of diapers due to the complicated logistics involved in receiving and managing donations in a disaster zone. Our goal is to help families as quickly and efficiently as possible and utilize monetary donations to purchase discounted diapers and wipes and ship them directly to designated locations throughout South Florida.
Where does my donation go?
Donations made to our Disaster Relief Fund go towards helping families affected by hurricanes and other natural disasters. We are committed to supporting families throughout the recovery process and donations made towards disaster relief also go towards post-recovery efforts to support families rebuild their lives.
Can I donate online?
Do you donate to individuals?
No. We donate diapers to community parters and third party nonprofits/agencies who serve and provide services to children and families in crisis.
How do I organize and host a diaper drive?
Our Amazon Wishlist is the easiest way to coordinate diaper donations on our behalf, especially from out of state. If you would like to organize a diaper drive and collect physical donations, please contact us so we can provide you with the best location for you to send the diapers. CONTACT EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org
