We believe changing diapers changes lives. We partner with 26 agencies in West Central Illinois to provide diapers and wipes, period supplies, and senior incontinence products to our communities. We distribute over 40,000 diapers and 350+ period kits each month to 11 counties.

Diaper Need Awareness Week!
During September, our goal is not only to increase awareness around diaper need in Galesburg/Peoria and surrounding areas but to STUFF THE TRUCK with 50,000+ diapers! National Diaper Need Awareness Week is set for September 24 – October 2, 2022, and will conclude with our most important diaper and dollar fundraiser event of the year, Stuff the Truck, on Saturday, October 1, 2022!
Ways To Get Involved!
Host a Diaper Drive
Set up a collection box in your neighborhood, at your church, your office, or your kids school, and have folks drop off packages of diapers to be donated to the diaper bank. Then bring your diapers to one of our Stuff the Truck drives on Saturday, October 1, between 8am-3pm.
Host a Virtual Drive
Set up an Amazon wishlist that sends diapers directly to Loving Bottoms or your home! If you have diapers delivered to you, you’ll bring them to the Stuff the Truck Diaper Drive nearest you on Saturday, October 1, and help us STUFF THE TRUCK!

2 in 5 U.S. women struggle to afford period supplies each year. Only 4% of U.S. women are aware of a local resource where they could access free or reduced-cost period supplies. Like diapers, the cost of period supplies has risen in 2021 and 2022, making access to period supplies harder.
