The benefits of donating to a Virtual Drive:
- Your gift goes farther! Because MFO can acquire diapers at a deep discount, a donation to our virtual diaper drive can purchase four times more diapers than purchasing them at retail.
- Distribution is more efficient. When we purchase wholesale, the diapers are delivered directly to our community partners, and they are packaged in a way that streamlines distribution, saving the resources that would be needed for sorting, repackaging, picking up and delivering.
- MFO can better manage inventory and storage. Having funds for diapers in reserve allows us to order the exact quantities and sizes of diapers needed, when they are needed.
- It reduces environmental impact. Diapers purchased wholesale and delivered to our partners use half the amount of packaging and shipping compared to diapers purchased retail and donated to MFO.
