Student Volunteers

We welcome students to Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank! Consider us when looking for rewarding ways to fulfill your community service hour requirements for school and clubs. With our online volunteer signups, tracking and verifying your hours has never been easier! We offer several evening and Saturday morning volunteer times each month to work around your school day, but they fill up fast so don’t wait till the last minute!

Group Volunteers

Interested in bringing your group to volunteer? Great idea! We can organize a 2-3 hour private volunteer event for your work, school, or social group. Wrapping diapers is a great team-building activity! Email Jean to coordinate your volunteer event.

Young Volunteers

We welcome kids of all ages to the Sweet Cheeks warehouse. Guardians–you’re the best judge of your younger kiddos’ capacity to work at our warehouse for a couple of hours. We have a small play area to keep younger kids occupied (and contained if you’ve got some really little ones!) while you save the world one clean diaper at a time. Kids under the age of 16 must be accompanied with a youth to adult ratio of 5:1.

There are many ways your younger children can get involved outside the warehouse too. Whether it’s organizing a diaper drive in your neighborhood or school or an Empty-Your-Piggybank change drive to collect loose coins for Sweet Cheeks, it’s never too early to start teaching our kids how to serve others and their community. We’d also love to come speak to your Daisy Troop, Girl Scouts, Cub or Boy Scouts, church youth group, or other group of youngsters about diaper need in the Greater Cincinnati community and how they can help to eliminate it.

**If you are under 18 years old, please download and bring a copy of the child volunteer waiver (linked below) that has your guardian’s signature. You will not be allowed to volunteer without it!**

*Send us a note if you have any questions or a younger group of children interested in helping!*
