National Diaper Need Awareness Week is September 24th to October 2nd
Throughout the week, Little Hands Virginia will be collecting diapers to stock up. While we appreciate all size diapers, we especially need diapers size newborn, 2, 5 and 6, as well as pull-ups for boys and girls in all sizes.
Diapers can be dropped off at the Little Hands office (7101 Forest Hill Ave., Suite L, Richmond, VA 23225) during our regular donation hours: Monday through Thursday from 10am to 3pm. We will have Saturday donation hours on October 1st from 9am to noon.
Diapers can also be purchased online through our Target Registry! Diapers can be shipped directly to our office. You can also select store pick up at the Forest Hill store and put Ashley Raggi (firstname.lastname@example.org) as the pick up person and Little Hands will pick up the diapers.
