DIAPERS & DONUTS at Baby2Baby
Corps Members Matt Braunger, Patrick Fisackerly, Vinnie Duyck, Anne Rieman, Stephanie Allynne, Lauren Lapkus, John Roy, Ariana Lenarsky & Kulap Vilaysack flexed their muscles unloading 200K donated diapers from Huggies in record time! We were told that it took them 9 hours their last event and we came in under 2!! It might have been said that there wasn’t a forklift before, but it’s hard to hear when you are eating donut holes and little cups of fresh fruit.
Since we had time to spare, we sealed hundreds of envelopes holding invitations to their first huge fundraising gala. We sat around children tables with glue sticks, only taking breaks to wolf down an abundance of pizza… and left over donuts. Was this volunteering? Too full to figure it out.
Thank you to CM Brandon Johnson for the tip off that we needed to reach out to Baby2Baby.
A very special thank you to Madison Miller and all the wonderful people at Baby2Baby.org! We’ll be back to help sort donations and haul diapers whenever you need us.
