Volunteer

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 75,000 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.
