Kyleigh’s Gift Diaper Drive

April 5, 2018 @ 8:00 am - April 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

What is Kyleigh’s Gift?
Rodger and Leann Weller created Kyleigh’s Gift after the passing of their daughter, Kyleigh Elizabeth in 2012. Today, the fund touches thousands each year through OB staff training, safe sleep and infant crying initiatives, providing equipment and meal support for struggling families, and creating memory boxes and care packages for those facing pregnancy or infant loss. The fund is housed at the Liberty Hospital Foundation.

Why a Diaper Drive?
One in five Kansas City children live in poverty. The diaper need for these families is real. Babies and children who have access to clean, fresh diapers are healthier and happier. Since 2015, over 31,000 diapers have been collected in memory of Kyleigh on her birthday. The annual Diaper Drive is a way to honor her and all that Kyleigh’s Gift is doing for infants and families in the community.

Where do the diapers go?
Diapers will be distributed among Liberty North Star – Baby GraceHappyBottoms, and Lee’s Summit Social Services.

How can I give?
Scroll down for links to Amazon and Target wish lists to purchase diapers that are sent directly to us. Online donations are also welcome and will go toward purchase of additional diapers. Diapers can be physically dropped off at the Liberty Hospital Foundation office during the drive.
