On June 24, we celebrated our second anniversary with a backyard wine tasting! So many people worked hard to make it a success and we couldn’t have done it without the help of Vienna Vintner, Card my Yard Fairfax, all of our supporters and friends, AND the board of Food for Others who presented us with a grant check for $20,000. We were blown away and so appreciative! In our first two years we distributed over 443,000 diapers and are ready for the next two. Thank you all for your love and support!
It certainly was a year like no other for all of us! For Fairfax Diapers it was our first full year in operation and we came a long way. We Distributed 270,000 diapers in 7188 packages through 10 local organizations. We were the recipients of thousands of diapers from drives through schools, churches, girl scout troops, and service clubs and we went from two to ten partner organizations. We distributed diapers through Food for Others, Women Giving Back, Annandale United Methodist Church Mission, Fairfax Visiting Nurses, Annandale High School, St. Matthews United Methodist Church, Family Pass, Lutheran Family Services, Falls Church High School and KIND and just added She Believes in Me in January. We are so fortunate to be able to provide diapers to those in need in our community with the generous assistance of all of our donors and friends! 2021…we are ready!
We were able to distribute 29,545 diapers to 779 babies through 6 local partner organizations. We are so proud to be working with Food for Others, Women Giving Back, Annandale United Methodist Church Mission, Annandale HS, Falls Church HS, Family Pass! November we are ready for you!
Our first year in operation ended on June 25, 2020, and we are so glad that we were up and running when the pandemic hit! While we distributed 7640 diapers in July 2019, we almost quadrupled that number in June 2020 with 29,468 diapers distributed. The need continues to be tremendous and we are incredibly grateful for the continued support from our friends and donors!
