This past April, the KeHE Cares® Foundation and the KeHE Marketing Team partnered with a local Chicagoland organization called the ARK to help moms in desperate need of diapers. The mission of the ARK is to help the Chicagoland Jewish community who are facing adversity navigate toward self-reliance. ARK professionals, volunteers, and donors provide free, comprehensive services within a framework of Jewish values and laws.
Many of these mothers are faced with the challenge of either feeding or diapering their children, especially infants. To help relieve the stress and financial burden these mothers face, KeHE organized a Diaper Drive. Employees could purchase raffle tickets for various prizes by donating $10 per raffle ticket.
With everyone’s participation in the raffle and the support from KeHE Cares®, almost $8,000 was raised for the ARK. The generosity of KeHE nation has allowed us to surpass the 3-month goal of diapers for mothers in need.
Additionally, we would like to thank Bamboo Nature for their generous donation of baby wipes. Please see the “Thank You” video below from the CEO of the ARK, Marna Goldwin.
