Community High Holiday Diaper Drive
September 24 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
JFS has seen an increased demand for diapers and wipes during our Food Pantry’s weekly drive-thru distribution. In an effort to meet that need, we are merging our Annual High Holiday Drive with our 10th Annual Diaper Shower. Even with a weekly supply of 6,000 diapers to distribute, we run out within the first hour of our three-hour distribution. We anticipate that we need about 15,000 diapers in various sizes every week to meet the need.
Please consider giving in one of the following ways:
Drop & Go
Thursday, September 24, 2020 between 3:00pm-6:00pm
See the difference our community makes by attending our contactless drive-thru collection. Please put donations in your trunk so volunteers can safely retrieve them as you come through the JFS parking lot.
Amazon Wish List: bit.ly/JFSDwishlist
When you purchase through the link above, the boxes are automatically shipped to our pantry. If you’d like to purchase elsewhere, please have your donation shipped to 5402 Arapaho Road, Dallas, TX 75248.
The North Texas Food Bank has provided us with completely pre-packaged boxes of food since we transitioned to the drive-thru distribution model, so we have found that there is not a need for physical food donations at this time. However, it’s become clear that there is a great need for diapers and wipes. Even with a weekly supply of 6,000 diapers to distribute, we run out within the first hour of our three-hour distribution. We anticipate that we need about 15,000 diapers in various sizes every week to meet the need.
Please note that physical donations will not be accepted at JFS outside of the designated drop off time on September 24.
We look forward to working together to provide our clients with the things they need most in the midst of this pandemic.
