What is it?
This Mother’s Day, I’m inviting you and your church to join a special Mother’s Day project: a way to honor the mamas in your life, your congregation, and your community, and help struggling mamas right here in New Jersey.
Why should I be involved?
Mother’s Day is right around the corner – May 8th. Here at The Maker’s Place, we’ve come to realize something: nobody works as hard as a mama. Last year, over 1500 mamas and caregivers requested diapers from us because they were struggling to afford essential items, like diapers, for their little ones. We distributed 220,000 diapers to 1 in 4 children in Trenton. We were able to help because of the radical generosity of people like you!
How can I help?
Please consider what you can give. $50 can buy a month’s supply of diapers; a $500 donation can keep a little one safe, healthy, and dry for up to a year. You can donate online or write to "The Maker's Place" at P.O. Box 54, Trenton NJ 08601.
Make a donation, and we’ll send a personalized letter of recognition to you to share with your honoree, letting them know that essential items, like diapers, have been donated to a Trenton-area mom in their honor!
Haven't been TP'd yet?
Send us an email with your church or organizations name, pastor or supervisor's name, and address!
What's this mean?
You've received a TP roll in the mail from us inviting you to support The Maker's Place and make a change for families and children in Trenton, NJ.
Why a TP roll?
An empty toilet paper roll is the closest representation for what it feels like to experience diaper need. 1 in 3 families in the United States do not have enough diapers for their children. The average family is short 50 diapers a month, and so, they rely on diaper banks, like us, to fill the gap.
How can I help?
Share the TP roll as your church takes a communion offering, or your organization collects a donation. Plan to participate in our December Diaper Drive, and set a goal to achieve!
