diaper preparation and order fulfillment
Sign up for one of our open community shifts to wrap diapers and fulfill orders for our distribution agencies. Serve with other volunteers who are 14 and older for two hours to prepare diapers that will be distributed to local children.
direct diaper distribution and limited mass distribution events
HappyBottoms may participate in drive-through distributions throughout the year. By representing HappyBottoms you will provide diapers directly to families who need them in a drive-through format at various locations. Events are typically 3 hours long. The families we serve are diverse and may speak limited English; you must be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment aimed at offering dignity and access to those you serve.
unpack diapers at an agency
By representing HappyBottoms at one of our distribution agencies, you will unpack their monthly diaper order and help them to get organized for distributing diapers to families.
adopt a donation drop site
Enable community members to conveniently donate diapers by picking up donations upon request from one of our Drop Sites and delivering them to our warehouse. You can find our drop site locations here.
Administrative volunteers serve from home or at the warehouse to enter data, inventory diapers and supplies, organize items, and help with projects as needed.
maintenance and repair
If you are handy, HappyBottoms has a variety of ongoing projects within the warehouse where you could be of help.
internships and sabbaticals
We support unpaid internship, service-learning and service sabbaticals for volunteers 14 and older including high school and college students and corporate sabbaticals. We will develop a unique schedule and work plan together and confirm service hours. Experiences may include diaper preparation and order fulfillment, diaper inventory support, data entry, research, diaper distribution to clients and other opportunities that support the work of HappyBottoms.
host a diaper drive
You can help HappyBottoms families by hosting a virtual diaper drive. We distribute about 200,000 diapers a month and new families are asking for assistance every day. As the unemployment numbers climb, your help is needed now more than ever. Diaper Drive Flyer
