Annual Diaper Drive – Please Donate!

Did you know? The average baby uses over 3,000 diapers in the first year. For some families, the cost is overwhelming. These families are supported through the UW Madison Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology’s annual Diaper Drive. Each year, the Madison Mini Marathon and its participants have played an important role in the success of the Drive. Over the past 10 years, we’ve been able to donate over 76,000 diapers to local families in need. The Drive runs the entire month of August. To find location bins near you or to donate online, go to obgyn.wisc.edu/diaper-drive
