group volunteer

Please contact volunteer@happybottoms.org to learn more about virtual educational opportunities, hosting an online diaper drive, joining the Diaper League and other safe but meaningful opportunities for your group while our group shifts are suspended due to COVID-19.

Groups are the heart of our volunteer experience. Enjoy team building and hands-on work that provides diapers to 10,500+ children each month and helps maintain our 20,000 square foot warehouse for smooth operations. In addition to serving together your group will learn about Diaper Need and HappyBottoms operations, receive project specific training, and have time for taking photos and reflecting upon your accomplishments. Volunteers must sign a waiver once annually to participate. 

  • diaper preparation and fulfillment

    Enjoy knowing that the diapers you wrap and orders you fulfill will be distributed to local children within the month. Shifts are 2 hours and we require a minimum of 8 volunteers. Tasks may include opening diaper boxes, counting diapers, wrapping packages, attaching labels, placing packages onto carts to fulfill orders, placing packages into bags, filling out bag tags, loading diapers onto vehicles, recycling and light cleaning.

  • wrap hospital diapers monthly

    Your group of 8+ volunteers may commit to a monthly shift to wrap and prepare diaper packages that are distributed to newborns through our hospital partners.

  • cleaning

    Create a clean environment for staff, volunteers, visitors and the 2.3 million diapers distributed each year from the warehouse. This is a great project for smaller groups of 8 or fewer. 

  • yardwork

    Help HappyBottoms to be a good neighbor by taking care of our outside green spaces. Small or large groups can help with this ongoing need. 

  • High School Opportunities

    Join us as an individual volunteer or bring a group. All students under the age of 18 must have parents sign a completed “minor volunteer waiver.” We will provide confirmation of volunteer hours upon request.

  • junior council member

    Open to high school students, you will provide leadership during volunteer shifts, help with special events twice a year, and advocate for HappyBottoms within your school and community.  Members are accepted via an application process. Contact volunteer@happybottoms.org for an application and requirements for membership.
