Support OVER THE MOON’s Community Diaper Drive, Savannah

September 20th, 2021

Over Moon Diaper Bank Savannah Drive Community Chatham County

“OVER THE MOON” to Hold Community Diaper Drive Sept. 22- Oct. 6, 2021

OVER THE MOON (Coastal Georgia’s only diaper bank) is holding a Community Diaper Drive Sept 22 through Oct. 6 throughout the Savannah area. You can help by dropping off diapers, training pants, or unscented baby wipes at any of the donation barrel sites listed online here.  OTM’s donation wish list is available through Target and the items ship directly to OVER THE MOON.

1 in 3 families’ health is threatened because they cannot afford to buy basic hygiene essentials. Safety-net programs, such as WIC and Food Stamps awarded through SNAP, do NOT cover the cost of diapers – taxed items in the state of Georgia.

OVER THE MOON’s Diaper Drive coincides with National Diaper Bank Awareness week which draws attention to the issue of diaper need in the U.S.

Savannah’s OVER THE MOON is a volunteer-run 501(c)3 nonprofit in Coastal Georgia which provides diaper bundles, period supplies, and other hygiene necessities through partner agencies, community events and directly to families as-needed. OVER THE MOON aims to end “diaper need” and “period poverty” because they believe in dignity for all, no matter how big or small.

You can help OVER THE MOON meet their 2021 goal to collect over 50,000 diapers (wipes, too!) by contributing to this Community Diaper Drive 9/22-10/6. Public Donation Barrel locations throughout the Savannah area include:
