Operation Bare Necessities
Activate Good + Diaper Bank NC Call for Volunteers!
This January, Activate Good is partnering with the Diaper Bank of North Carolina to mobilize volunteers to package 30,000 diapers and 5,000 period and incontinence products to support an estimated 1,700 individuals and families in need!
Volunteer at the Diaper Bank
(in-person; socially distanced / outdoors)
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Diaper Bank has seen a 2000% increase in the need for adult incontinence products, an 800% increase in the need for period products, and a 400% increase in the need for diapers. At the same time, the Diaper Bank has been operating with a severe volunteer shortage.

The Diaper Bank will gladly accept all size diapers, adult products, and period products (even open packages – they quarantine them following CDC guidelines before wrapping), but size 4T-5T pullups, and adult incontinence pullups in size XL and XXL are the most urgent need at this time.
