Here's the latest Mitzvah Circle Foundation electronic newsletter!  We'd love your feedback.
Honor a Mother in Your Life and Restore Dignity
to Moms and Babies Who Need Help

April 19, 2016
Mitzvah Circle Foundation is out of size 5 and 6 diapers, the most commonly requested sizes.

We Need Your Help!  What Can You Do?
  • Make a donation and indicate it is in someone’s honor. We’ll send a certificate letting the special mom know that a donation was made to celebrate her on Mother’s Day. (Donations must be made by May 6th for a certificate to reach her by Mother’s Day)

  • Organize a Diaper Drive at your school, business, church or community group. Contact us if you’d like collection boxes, information, flyers or brochures.

  • Collect monetary donations so we can purchase diapers at greatly reduced rates.

Why are diapers so important?

Fast Facts
  • Babies living in poverty in the US get their diapers changed once a day, on average.

  • 1 in 3 American families experience diaper need.

  • Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps.

  • Disposable diapers cost $70 to $80 per month per baby.

  • No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers.

  • Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large “big box” store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers

Negative Consequences
  • Mitzvah Circle Foundation serves hundreds of medically fragile babies, who are exposed to many health risks if they spend too long in a soiled diaper.

  • Most childcare centers, even free and subsidized facilities, require a day’s supply of disposable diapers.

  • Cloth diapers are not accepted at the vast majority of child care centers, nor can they be washed at laundromats.

  • Parents cannot go to work or school if they can’t leave their babies at child care.

Call or email us for more information, to volunteer, or to drop off a collection.

Contact Rachel at (267) 649-7610 or

Our regular hours for donation drop-offs and volunteers are Monday – Thursday, 8:30-2:00 and Friday 9-12.

We are also open a couple Sundays a month, and in the evening for groups of volunteers, by appointment.

When you lend a hand to someone in need the life most changed may be your own.
