Happy new year!

Please come kick off 2020 with our January GMM. We will have our annual placement preview fair from 6:00-6:30 p.m. and then we will have a self-care training. We have some DIAD opportunities this month and a book club brunch--I hope to see some folks there! 

See you all soon!

GMM: January General Membership Meeting
Date: Tuesday, January 14, 2020
Time: 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m
Location: JLCV HQ 3060 Williston Road Suite 4

All current and interested members may attend. The first 30 minutes will be our annual placement preview fair. All committees will have a table set up and will be available to answer questions about their positions. This is a great time to explore where you might want to be placed next year! The official meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. There will be a training on self-care.  This GMM counts as one training credit.

Fundraising Event Budget Vote

The FY 20 budget did not contemplate hosting a fundraising event since plans were not realized until late fall.  Per JLCV bylaws, any expense over $500 not allocated in the budget must be approved by the membership.  We will be taking a vote at the January GMM to approve a supplement to the FY 20 budget specific to the Fundraising Event.  The proposed supplement is in the Google Drive at this link: 2020 Event Budget.
If you will not be in attendance at the January GMM, please submit your vote via absentee ballot to no later than January 14 at 6:00 p.m.

Contact Nicole with questions.

We had a VERY busy December with multiple outside groups making lots of progress repackaging diapers, which puts us in a great position going into 2020! Our first repackaging opportunity this year is a unique one -- the wonderful Nancy Warner has been holding nine pallets of Size 2 diapers for us at her Stowe warehouse for the past few months. We'll gather there and repackage--and I hope you can join us!

Repackaging dates are on the JLCV calendar through May if you want to plan ahead.

The new members class is in the midst of a Pull-Up® drive, which is the one type of diapers we didn't receive in our big NDBN delivery. We are excited by their efforts and hope everyone supports them by sharing the Diaper Need graphics on social media and beyond.

Two important dates to save :: 
  • National Diaper Bank Network CEO Joanne Goldblum will be speaking to us at our February GMM on Feb. 11th. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to have a nationally-known dynamic speaker come visit us. We plan to build an event around it and invite community partners. Please plan to attend and invite friends and colleagues who might be interested.
  • In our ongoing advocacy efforts, we will have a table at Early Childhood Day at the State House in Montpelier on Wednesday, March 11th. Start and end times will be confirmed later, but note that this event will take place during business house. Please join us for an hour or two to help us educate legislators about diaper need and our efforts. Early Childhood Day is an effort of the Vermont Early Childhood Advocacy Alliance (, an organization of which we recently became a partner.

Thank you all for your ongoing support of the bank!
