Help Happy Bottoms keep KC babies clean, dry and healthy. 1 in 3 families do not have enough diapers to do just that and Happy Bottoms helps fill the need. Throughout the greater Kansas City area, many low-income families need extra support, especially this year. Tight budgets require families to make sacrifices, often leaving children without essential items like diapers. Help Happy Bottoms meet that need by donating tomorrow from 10 to 2 next to the Brookside Post Office, 108 W 63rd! They are accepting un-opened diapers and monetary donations.
HappyBottoms is a nonprofit collecting diapers through diaper drives and monetary donations. They work with more than two dozen local partner agencies to distribute diapers to thousands of low-income families in the Kansas City area. Learn more at
