Mission How can you help?

By hosting a diaper drive or becoming a drop-off location, you can help us have enough diapers to donate to the families who depend on us each month. As a drop-off partner, we will provide you with a box to store the diapers, we will share our partnership on our social media channels, and you will be listed on our website. Given notice, we will even pick up the diapers from your location at the end of your diaper drive or if your box is full.
If you would like to hold a diaper drive, email diaperbank@jlbr.org more information. We would love to help you host a drive.

•Don’t have time to shop?
For every $10 you donate, the Junior League of Boca Raton Diaper Bank can purchase 62 diapers, tax free.

We will accept boxes of diapers at the Junior League of Boca Raton VCRC (261 NW 13th Street, Boca Raton, Fl 33432). Please email diaperbank@jlbr.org for the Diaper Donation Form.
