Charity Spotlight: Diaper Bank of the Ozarks

Diaper Bank-logo

What started as a neat idea has grown into an inspiring cause. That’s the best way to describe the Diaper Bank of the Ozarks.

After all, since its founding in 2012, the organization has distributed more than 4.5 million diapers. That includes last year, when Diaper Bank of the Ozarks – get this – distributed 1,042,916 diapers to 101 partner agencies serving 50 counties in the Ozarks.

Which is why the PGA Korn Ferry Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper is proud to have Diaper Bank of the Ozarks (DBO) on board again this year. For DBO, PCCC has made a difference.

“PCCC has helped spread awareness about the mission of the Diaper Bank of the Ozarks,” said Kelly Paparella, Program Director for DBO. “Because we distribute to agencies, many people in our community did not know about the DBO. After becoming a participating charity, we have definitely seen an increase of awareness to help our mission.”
