This Huntsville Weekend celebrate local veterans on a Hero Hike, and be a hero yourself by helping babies in need with the Great Diaper Drive! You can also get a head start on the holidays with some fun markets and events starting this weekend. If you don’t find something below, you can always check out our full Event Calendar for even more fun stuff!
Be a Super Hero & Help Local Babies in Need
According to the National Diaper Bank Network, demand for diapers increased about 70% in 2021. Dirty diapers lead to painful rashes and, if untreated, serious infections, even hospitalization. Sick and hurting babies cry. Crying babies create stress, and added stress can lead to situations of domestic abuse and neglect. If all of that can be avoided with a clean diaper, it’s up to us to build and empower our Villages to provide them. Learn how you can get involved here.
