Delaware’s inaugural No Babies Wet Behind diaper drive will take place April 13, with drop-off locations throughout Delaware.
The original event was created and organized by Lisa Prestipino, of Apple Electric, located in Rehoboth Beach, and supported by those who live in the coastal Delaware resort region. Previously, diaper drive happy hours were organized at Nage restaurant, now Fork and Flask, and area gyms planned group exercise parties and yoga gatherings where diapers were donated for entry. Thousands of diapers were donated and provided by truckloads to the Gardenia House, a safe house for single mothers located in Georgetown.

Kent County drop-off locations are East Dover Elementary School, 852 S. Little Creek Road, from 1 to 4 p.m.; and South Dover Elementary School, 955 S. State St., from 1 to 4 p.m.
