Meet our new partner, the Milwaukee Diaper Mission! HAWA has secured a partnership with the MDM for receiving diapers and period products for our community closet for ONE WHOLE YEAR! We cannot thank them enough.

The MDM is a non-profit volunteer run organization that aims to empower families in need by providing a reliable source of free diapers and period products. Their vision is to raise awareness of the basic needs of the families we serve and to eliminate diaper needs and period poverty in Milwaukee. They partner directly with social service agencies, and HAWA was fortunate to be added on their partner list in June. You can read more about them here.
