In our metro there are 21,000 diaper-aged children who are not getting enough diapers to stay clean, dry and healthy. That’s 1 in 5 kids in Kansas City!
The Cathedral helps collect diapers for HappyBottoms, KC’s diaper bank, 3 times/year. Thank you for bringing packages of new or previously opened diapers to the blue bin in the crosshall by Haden Hall.
We accept all sizes, even open packs. Bring your diaper donations to the blue barrel in the cross-hall entry or to the basket in the tower.
HappyBottoms is a local organization that works with partners to provide diapers to low-income families. HappyBottoms collects and buys diapers at highly discounted rates from nonprofit channels such as Harvesters. Then they give the diapers to their partner agencies, which distribute them among the families they serve. Find out more about HappyBottoms at happybottoms.org.
We sponsor diaper drives in January, June and September. You may bring diapers anytime to the blue barrel in the cross-hall entry.
