Our next Friday Night Lights is going down June 19th at 6:30pm!
Last week, my friend Aurora messaged me pretty upset. (Background: She and I both had babies around the same time, effectively turning us into not only spastic first-time parents but part-time confidantes for the other. I highly recommend it.)
She had just spoken with The Food Bank on another project (she is seriously a superhero) and they had mentioned that they were in DIRE need of diapers and formula. Then she dropped the worst sentence on me…
The Food Bank had said that some babies are wearing only ONE diaper a day.
Even if you’re not a parent or have never been around a small child before, you know that’s awful. For me, it’s unthinkable.
So we’re doing something about it. A Friday Night Lights to collect diapers, formula or cash ($10) to buy both to donate to the Food Bank. Along with Lizzi & Rocco’s, we’ve been collecting all month and we’re already close to 1,000 diapers. Let’s show them how CrossFit can does fundraising!
Join us on June 19 at 6:30pm for Friday Night Lights to benefit the Diaper Drive for The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri. Your entry fee is a package of diapers or canister of formula (any size diaper or canister of powdered formula). We will not only collect that night, but through July 5.
To watch is free, but donations are appreciated! Participation sign ups will be located at the front desk! Please sign up so we can organize the event and let it run as efficiently as possible! Member of another box? We’d love to have you! Please contact us to sign up.
A little tip:
Where can I get the best-priced diapers to donate?
