How does the Luvs & Hugs Diaper Drive work?
- Drive runs Monday, Feb. 13 - Friday, Feb. 24
- Each diaper is one point. (Pack of 24 diapers? That’s 24 points!)
- The business or organization with the most points – in other words, the most donated diapers – by Friday, Feb. 24 at 5 p.m. wins the competition.
- The Valdosta Junior Service League is awarding $500 to the winning business to donate to the charity of their choice. The winner will be announced on Saturday, February 25.
How do I participate?
Interested businesses and organizations should contact Bonnie Skinner to sign up to participate. A member of VJSL will get in touch to coordinate delivering the donation box, diaper point tally, pick up and drop off to Second Harvest Food Bank. Second Harvest will distribute the donated diapers to those in need in the South Georgia area.
Individuals can donate diapers at any of the participating locations!
