Fly & Dry Basic Needs Bank’s Frequently Asked Questions
HOW CAN I GET PRODUCTS FROM FLY & DRY BASIC NEEDS BANK?
Fly & Dry Basic Needs bank will follow the same distribution model as our sister program Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank, which provides diapers to social service organizations and government agencies (such as schools) that are helping families in need through comprehensive programs and services. Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank has found that distributing diapers in this way ensures they reach those who need them most. It also provides partnering organizations a resource – diapers – they are not normally able to provide, increasing the services they can offer. By working with organizations that are already well established in the community and currently working with families in need, we ensures that products are distributed to families in the most efficient and timely manner. For a variety of reasons, we cannot distribute diapers directly to families. If you would like to receive diapers on an ongoing basis, please check our Need Diapers page for a current list of our partner agencies.
