Volunteer

Please note: Because of Covid-19 we have limited volunteer opportunities, but we expect to ramp back up in the spring

In addition to the groups and individuals who organize and run diaper drives, we are in need of individuals to help on a regular basis to build and operate the diaper bank. As we are now shipping 50,000 diapers a month, we need volunteers of all types to help maintain our growth.

If you’re interested in volunteering, contact us at info@utahdiaperbank.org.
