TaylorMade Doulas eases access to diapers for families in Sacramento region
Folsom, California— No Child Wet Behind hosts their 1st annual 5K fundraiser Saturday, May 21st at Willow Creek in Folsom, CA.
No Child Wet Behind’s (NCWB) mission is to get diapers to those in need via monetary donations as well as diaper donations. NCWB is a nonprofit; it was started by Northeast Doulas, LLC, a for-profit company based out of Peekskill, NY. On may 21st 2016 Taylor Made Doulas, a company that provides professional doula services to families in Sacramento, Placer, Yolo and El Dorado County will host a satellite event in Folsom, CA.
“I remember us hopping in our car, filled to the brim with diapers, and driving around Peekskill handing out diapers to desperate parents,” says Randy Patterson, co-owner of Northeast Doulas. “The need was so great: we had people knocking on our door looking for more diapers. We knew we had to do something.”
NCWB is just one of a few organizations aiming to educate about and prevent diaper deprivation. Taylor Made Doulas has teamed up with several other agencies around the nation to make this event national. Each agency will host the event on the same day, May 21st. The efforts of the event here Folsom will benefit the Ripples to Waves; a local Folsom non-profit that supports families in Folsom and surrounding areas. Diapers will also benefit The Tubman House of Sacramento.
NCWB will make a sizable diaper donation to these organizations as a result of this event.
The family-friendly day will start with a 5k run/walk around Willow Creek, followed by activities for all ages, including: a bouncy house, vendor boutique, food and beverage trucks, raffle prizes, children’s area and more. All participating organizations will be represented that day, with various ways to give and get involved.
The proceeds of the event will benefit No Child Wet Behind; diapers will be (even partially opened packs) accepted the day of the event and after by calling 530 401 1798.
