Diapers for Brevard County Families!

diaper donation

No Child Wet Behind-Melbourne 2018 was a success! Our goal was to collect 2,000 diapers for needy families in Brevard County.

This was our inaugural year raising awareness and diapers for needy families.

Children delighted in the fun equipment and structured play provided by Gymboree Music and Play of Melbourne. Parents relaxed and enjoyed the quality time with their children, as they escaped the down pouring rain from Tropical Storm Alberto. This was a wonderful, dry place to play and run off some energy! (We recommend checking out their “Mommy and Me” classes geared for infants! You’ll learn so much about your baby!)

We donated over 2600 diapers to the Sharing Center of Central Brevard.

“We are so elated for this donation; I can’t wait to see the reactions of the moms when we can give them a pack of diapers instead of just a few in a bag!”

-Paula Rebman, Vice President of Operations

We are so very grateful to Gymboree Music and Play for donating their space, raffle donations, and hosting play for children and their families. We had additional raffle prize donations from Pizza Gallery & Grill, Fit4Mom, and The Sunshine Baby Company.

Thank you to our local business partners and our community’s support of helping to provide clean diapers for needy families. This makes such a difference to those babies!

Do you have diapers to donate but the rain held you up? Contact us or stop by our drop box location through June 30: St. Mark’s United Methodist Church at 2030 N Hwy A1A in Indialantic, FL.

Next year we’re raising our goal! Plans have already begun for May 2019’s No Child Wet Behind!
