We need your help. Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank is on the search to find a warehouse. We have some very exciting potential partnerships to pursue, but until we have a warehouse those opportunities can’t be fully explored. One partnership allows us to purchase diapers for the administrative cost to get them to us. That would mean we could diaper a child for an entire year for $120. That’s AMAZING news friends. The “catch”? The diapers arrive on a 53′ semi truck. Until we have a warehouse with a loading dock, that avenue is closed. A local partnership we want to explore would most likely involve a similar setup in getting the diapers to Sweet Cheeks in large trucks, and until we have the infrastructure in place to receive diapers in mass quantities, we won’t be setting up a meeting to ask for partnership.
So here’s the details on what we’re looking for:
- Warehouse space
- Attached office space
- 1,000 square feet of storage space (which would allow us to store up to 250,000 diapers). If someone has a lead on a smaller space, do let us know, but we intend to grow–quickly!–and would like to keep our moving to a minimum.
- A loading dock that a 53′ semi is able to use
- We are absolutely open to sharing warehouse space with another organization.
- Location needs to be close to downtown Cincinnati.
Remember: we are a 501c3 nonprofit corporation. That means donations to us are tax deductible–even warehouse and office space! There are many reasons why it makes good sense for both individuals and corporations to donate warehouse and office space to nonprofits. Not only do you get to make a positive impact on your community, you have the potential to enjoy a significant tax deduction. The size of the tax deduction is based on the current market value of your property. So that warehouse space you bought in 1950 for $50,000 that is currently valued at $250,000 will give you a tax deduction of $250,000. Everyone wins!
