"Kids Helping Kids" - The Elontec School Diaper Drive Challenge
The Baby Diaper Drive counts on our school drive partners to reach the goal of 100,000 diapers each year. We believe in families helping families, and kids helping kids. Last year, seven schools participated in the Elontec School Diaper Drive Challenge and collected just over 70,000 diapers! We need your help to break that record this year
The Baby Diaper Drive creates unique opportunities for children to learn about philanthropy, serving others, leadership, and working together to accomplish a goal for the greater good. The entire school comes together, unifying classes and grade levels, to brainstorm ideas and collectively reach their goals for the diaper drive. And, it’s not just the students that join together - their families, teachers, and staff are also inspired by the cause. Participating schools are recognized for giving back to the community and for teaching future leaders the spirit of philanthropy. The School Diaper Drive has become an extension of the Homeward Bound family.
The Elontec School Diaper Drive Challenge provides a variety of incentives for the students since everyone enjoys a bit of competition and fun prizes. Last year, the school that collected the most diapers received a Mimio Teach board that was donated by Elontec. There were ice cream and pizza celebrations, no uniform days, and a host of other ways each school made the drive a fun experience.
Please contact Ginger Clayton or Susan Haugland to talk about your school participating with us.
