OVER THE MOON 🌙 is the first free-standing diaper • period • hygiene bank in Savannah and the Georgia coastal community.
OVER THE MOON (OTM) 🌙 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, founded in 2019 by Savannahian, Katie Griffith, who first learned of “diaper need” when Hurricane Harvey struck Texas and Louisiana in August 2017. After donating to the Texas Diaper Bank, she felt the need for a similar, local, charitable organization in the Georgia coastal community where poverty, hurricanes, and now the COVID-19 pandemic threaten more than 1 in 3 families’ health by limiting their access to basic hygiene staples. With help from wonderful friends & family, generous donors, supportive organizations, community volunteers, and partner agencies, OTM 🌙 now collects and distributes necessities throughout the coastal Georgia region including diaper bundles, period packs, incontinence supplies, disaster relief kits, and other basic essentials to those in need through provider partner agencies.
MISSION: OTM 🌙 partners with local provider agencies to supply free diaper bundles, period packs, hygiene products, and other basic essentials to families in need and to those affected by natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic, all while raising community awareness of basic health and hygiene needs, diaper lack, and period poverty.
VISION: OTM 🌙 aims to reduce diaper need and period poverty by bringing awareness to these sensitive issues and offering items to those who need them. By providing better access to these essential hygiene supplies, we are improving the health and dignity of our coastal community neighbors. We believe that everyone deserves a fresh start and to be clean, healthy, happy, safe, and dry.
