Today on Give Back Tuesday we were joined by Megan Fischer, Founder and CEO of Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank! Megan and her team have put blood, sweat and tears into this organization since it’s birth three years ago. What started out as a small nonprofit, in Megan’s basement, distributing only a couple hundred diapers a month, has since grown into a massive organization with a full board and staff.
Their mission is to eliminate the existence of diaper need in our community so that all babies have a chance to be healthy, happy, and safe. They partner with social service agencies in the Cincinnati area to provide free diapers to low-income families.
A few weeks ago, they distributed their one-millionth diaper!!! They are now distributing about 75,000 diapers a month. Which, believe it or not, only covers about 9% of the diaper need in our community.
So, how can you help?
Donate, donate, donate! If you have some extra diapers lying around that no longer fit your child, Sweet Cheeks will gladly take them off your hands – Even if they are no longer in the original packaging! You can drop them off at your local Once Upon A Child location or at their new warehouse downtown.
They also accept monetary donations! 🙂 Every little bit helps!!

Don’t miss their Diaper Dash this Saturday at Devou Park! I will be there hosting and playing some fun music to get the kiddos all pumped up! 😉 To learn more about the Sweet Cheeks Diaper Dash, CLICK HERE <3.
Thank you so much, Megan, for coming on Give Back Tuesday and sharing your passion for diaper need in our community!
