Did you know? The average baby uses 3,000 diapers in the first year. For some families, the cost is overwhelming. These families are supported through the annual Diaper Drive.
The mission of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is to improve the quality of life for women and their families in our local community, the state of Wisconsin, and beyond. As part of that mission, our annual Diaper Drive supports families in need in the Madison area by collecting diapers and monetary donations during the month of August. The department's Healthy Women Healthy Babies Fund supports the annual drive and enables the department to disribute donations to local organizations that support families with infants and toddlers in our community.
In 2019, with your help, we donated over 20,000 diapers to local community organizations. We are proud that we've been able to donate over 90,000 diapers to the local community over the years.
