One more week to donate diapers for struggling families in our community! Last Day: June 2

May 26, 2023

Heart of Indiana United Way's Annual Community Baby Diaper Drive collects diapers from across the region and provides them to local baby pantries to distribute to in-need families. Help us stock the baby pantries across the Heart of Indiana and make tons of happy bottoms!

You can drop off diapers on the Ball State University Campus until next Friday June 2nd at any of the following locations, or send diaper donations directly to United Way using the Ball State Amazon Wish List at

Diapers are one of the most expensive ongoing costs for struggling families with little ones. Did you know: 

  •  36% of parents living in poverty routinely run out of diapers for their infants and toddlers
  • 1 in 3 Indiana families struggle to afford diapers
  • Babies who remain in dirty diapers for prolonged periods experience diaper rash, infections, and other health problems
  • Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8.
  • Disposable diapers cost $100 each month per child
  • Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps
  • No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers

Let's show how much Cardinals care by filling our donation boxes and Amazon shopping carts with plenty of diapers to help support our friends and neighbors through Heart of Indiana United Way!
