Diapers and Wipes Drive
Starting in 2021, we held our first Diapers and Wipes Drive. Each diaper and wipe that we collected are donated to the Athens Area Diaper Bank. Since our first drive, we have collected over 1,000 diapers, 5,000 wipes , and monetary donations of over $750.
In 2023, we collected 3,476 wipes and 1,492 diapers!
To join us next year, check out our weekly newsletter for information when the drive starts.
Launching in the fall of 2023, we will be collecting items for CareKits for those in need in our community. Below is a link to an Amazon wishlist of items that we are in need of. When you purchase items off the wishlist, they will ship directly to the Athens Area HBA office.
We will have a call for volunteers to help stuff the CareKits. Stay connected with the AAHBA newsletter for our packing day!
A portion of the proceeds from the Cornhole Tournament each year will go to supporting our CareKits initiative.
Homes for Hunger 5K
Launched in 2019, we host a 5k to collect canned and dry goods for A.C.T.S Food Bank.
Visit the AAHBA calendar to stay up to date with the annual Homes for Hunger 5K registration. If you aren't a runner and would like to drop off some canned goods, drop them by the office the second week of November.
