2018 Diaper Drives

Posted By Jessica K. Hazboun, Wednesday, July 18, 2018


Hi Everyone!

My name is Jessica Hazboun, I am your 2018 Healthy Mom&Baby Diaper Drive Consultant. I just wanted to reach out and and formally introduce myself, if I have not had the pleasure of meeting you before, and extend a helping hand in getting your 2018 diaper drives started. Thank you so much for all the amazing drives that have been held thus far. You have no idea how much you have impacted those families in need.


If you have not already done so, feel free to check out our video and share it to your fellow nurses, members in your community, on your social media, or even to your friends. An easy way to support diaper need is through raising awareness.


If you have already held a diaper drive, I would love for you to send me your stories and any photos you may have to share with our diaper drive community. 


Stay tuned for our August section and chapter challenges! Feel free to contact me with any questions, if you need support, or to just say hi. I look forward to working with you!
