Children and families in the vicinity seven City Dads Group outposts are benefiting from our members generosity today as we proudly participate in GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to helping others.
A crew of our Chicago Dads Group members will be pitching on #GivingTuesday night to help pack more than 13,000 meals for needy families using the Feed My Starving Children charity in Schaumburg, Ill.
Our Dallas Dads Group has been running a diaper drive to benefit Family Compass, a nonprofit that works to build healthy families in North Texas by preventing child abuse and neglect. The Dallas dads this morning will present the diapers to the organization, which has helped more than 44,000 since its start in 1992.
Diapers are also being collected by the San Francisco Dads Group and the St. Louis Dads Group to celebrate GivingTuesday. Our Bay Area affiliate has been holding a diaper drive to assist Help a Mother Out, a nonprofit that assists families in need, and worked with baby-care giant Pampers to secure a donation of 4,100 diapers. Our Missouri outpost’s efforts will benefit the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank, an organization dedicated to assisting low-income families.
NYC Dads Group volunteers will spend tonight sorting and bundling children’s clothing donated through Baby Buggy, a nonprofit group that works with a network of more than 100 community-based organizations across the country to distribute new and gently used essentials: from cribs and strollers to clothing and bottles.
GivingTuesday started in 2012 as a collaboration between New York’s 92nd Street Y, a longtime NYC Dads Group partner, and the United Nations Foundation. Tens of thousands of organizations worldwide annually participate in GivingTuesday activities.
