What We Do

The Diaper Bank collects donated diapers (and cash donations for the purchase of diapers) that are distributed free-of-charge to low-income households in Toronto through existing service providers, including local food banks, daycare centres, social service agencies and shelters.

The Diaper Bank partners with organizations that have direct experience and expertise working with high needs communities, particularly those located in Toronto’s inner suburbs, where child poverty is greatest.

The first drive in 2010 collected over 15,000 diapers, and the bank has been growing ever since.

The Diaper Bank also aims to raise awareness about the realities and effects of raising children in poverty.

Who We Are

In 2010, shortly after the first diaper drive was completed, we came together to help meet a growing need in Toronto. As mums, we know first hand the joys and challenges of raising children today. We know that being a parent is one of the toughest jobs out there. Imagine doing it without the ability to provide for a child’s basic needs.

While diaper banks exist in other cities, there is a gap in providing this service in our own community. As a result, the Diaper Bank of Toronto was established in 2010, and in 2013, it became a registered charity.

Dale McIntosh is a freelance Event Producer working with both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. She has a long history of philanthropic involvement with establishments such as Camp Oochigeas and Kids Up Front.

Savannah Lockie has worked in the not-for-profit sector for over 15 years with the United Nations Association in Canada and the United Way in Ottawa and in Toronto. She is an active volunteer in her community.

Both Dale and Savannah have two young children each.

We ask that you support our initiative by collecting and donating diapers, or by making a financial donation to help us purchase diapers. Your generosity will directly support families and children who need it.
