With 1 in 3 families experiencing diaper need and no diaper banks in central Arkansas, PHUMC chose to answer the call and open the Central Arkansas Diaper Bank in April 2019. The Central Arkansas Diaper Bank is a FREE community resource that is open to anyone in the central Arkansas community.
How To Receive Diapers
The Central Arkansas Diaper Bank is open on the first Wednesday of each month at the Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church Gathering Hall, located at 4823 Woodlawn Drive, Little Rock.
On that first Wednesday, the diaper bank’s pickup hours are 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. To guarantee diapers are available in the size you need, families are asked to email email@example.com to pre-order diapers prior to pick up day. Diapers are not guaranteed unless they are pre-ordered.
Please note: Due to COVID-19, diaper pickup is being done curbside, with families remaining in their vehicles.
How to Help
Volunteer: Volunteers are always needed. If you’d like to staff the pickup desk, organize diapers or feel called to serve in another way, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donate: Donations of diapers are accepted in any size and quantity. Open packages of diapers are also accepted. Diapers can be dropped off at the Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church main desk (Entrance 1) or the Donation Station outside of Entrance 7 off of Lee Avenue Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm and Sunday 8:00am to 12:00pm. You can also purchase diapers from an online retailer such as Amazon or Walmart and mail them directly to the church at 4823 Woodlawn Dr, Little Rock, AR 72205.
You can also make a monetary donation online at the link below. Please be sure to select the fund “Diaper Bank.” Thank you so much for helping families in need!
Central Arkansas Diaper Bank is run by unpaid volunteers. 100% of monetary donations are used for diapers.
