Spring is coming... and so is our fundraiser! Don't forget to buy tickets to our fundraising event on April 4th "Retro Night: Making Diaper Need a Thing of the Past" and come ready to have a good time! There will be a great band playing music from the '80s, '90s, and '00s and amazing raffle items.

In March we have a great opportunity to do some advocacy work--tabling at the Statehouse for the 26th annual Early Childhood Day. We are looking for folks to man our table for a few hours or to attend the Rally for Kids. Don't forget that we have a guest trainer, Dr. Lance Smith, coming to discuss diversity and inclusion, specifically related to socioeconomic status at our March GMM! 
See you all soon!

We Need Each Member to Commit to Helping to Make this Event a Success 

Take Action!

# 1 Buy Tickets!
Purchase two tickets--or encourage two non-JLCV guests to attend (if you cannot). Invite your friends. 

#2 Make an Ask- Please select one donor to contact about a raffle donation or sponsorship. 
If your name is there from a previous year and you want to take that one, go ahead. If you have another connection, pick a different one.  Please add your name to any and all asks you would like to make. 

#3 Sign Up for a Shift:
We depend on our members to help support this event by signing up for one event shift.  If you can spare some time, select your favorite shift! 
Thanks to all who attended what proved to be an incredibly informative and interesting talk by National Diaper Bank Network CEO Joanne Goldblum. We had a few great outside guests who also found it valuable and I look forward to following up with them and continuing to brainstorm about ways to alleviate diaper need statewide in Vermont. 

Our next big event is Wednesday March 11th when we'll be tabling at the statehouse for the 26th Annual Early Childhood Day at the Legislature organized by the Vermont Early Childhood Advocacy Alliance . If you think you can attend for an hour or two to man the table or attend the Rally for Kids (from 1:15-1:45 p.m.) please email Amanda and we'll coordinate timing.

We have a few repackagings to go this year and will hope to have all of our summer needs taken care of by May so we can essentially take the summer off from operations. This week, the donor who had previously given us the shelving will be back to install one more --after that (hopefully Thursday) we will be able to accept more pallets of diapers from the NDBN donation which the Vermont FoodBank has been GENEROUSLY holding for us.
