Urban Science’s Nashville team holds diaper drive to help children, families in need

At Urban Science, our team strives to build an employee experience that’s inclusive, ethical and inspiring, and to continue to develop a workforce that gives back and makes a positive impact in the places where we live and work. Led by Maggie Eason, a manager working in our Nashville office, Urban Scientists in Music City recently put our commitment to community into practice to assist Nashville Diaper Connection (NDC) on its mission to ensure every baby in Davidson County – home to Nashville – has enough diapers to stay clean, dry and healthy.  

NDC’s efforts are extremely important work because without diapers, babies can’t go to childcare or participate in early childhood education. Without childcare or early childcare, many parents can’t go to work or school; this breeds more tension in homes, often reducing nurturing and increasing the likelihood of abuse.  

Maggie learned about local families in need of diapers through her kids’ daycare center in the area during an annual diaper drive it hosted in conjunction with NDC. Inspired to lend a hand, Maggie asked how she and her colleagues could help support this mission of service as well. After arranging a diaper donation drive at their office, our Nashville team set a goal to collect 20 boxes of diapers to help the daycare center achieve its goal of collecting 20,000 diapers to promote comfort and wellbeing for local tots – and to reduce the financial strain associated with purchasing diapers for families in need.  

We’re proud to say our Nashville team exceeded its goal, donating more than 2,700 diapers to this amazing and inspiring cause. As a result of this work, these Urban Scientists have helped NDC make strides toward eliminating the diaper gap in their community. 

“The success of our inaugural diaper drive is truly a credit to the compassion and initiative of the Urban Scientists working in our Nashville office,” said Eason. “Our team has created an inclusive and supportive environment that allows us to raise ideas about how we can support our neighbors in need – and work together to drive positive change in the places we work and call home.” 

Eason says that while building a community support initiative from the ground up can seem daunting, it’s important to remember there are many people and organizations available to help.  

“In our experience, the most important step is the first step, even if it’s a small one,” said Eason. “That might mean simply asking someone – in our case, a daycare employee – how you can be part of the change. Rome wasn’t built in a day; the important thing is putting your good ideas and intentions into action.”
