Olin and CGFP Fellows: Making a Difference - St. Louis Area Diaper Bank

The idea to form the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank grew after the Diaper Bank’s founder, Jessica Adams, heard a story on the radio from the director of the National Diaper Bank Network about the prevalence of diaper need across the country. She pointed out that one in three mothers routinely finds herself without enough diapers to keep her child clean and dry. Stories of families across the country making tough choices between diapers and food or medicine, being forced to leave little ones for far too long in dirty diapers, and even having to reuse soiled diapers because they couldn’t afford to buy more struck a chord with Jessica. And when she found out that St. Louis didn't already have a diaper bank, Jessica decided to start one herself.

Last year, the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank distributed over three million diapers. Meet Muriel Smith, the Executive Director of this powerful resource that ensures that individuals and families in the St. Louis region have a resource for diapers to help take care of their most basic needs; creating an awareness of how diaper need affects their lives. Muriel is an experienced non-profit professional with expertise in nonprofit management, community relations, marketing communications, fundraising, and board development. She has nearly 20 years of experience serving several nonprofit organizations in St. Louis during the course of her career. She is also a graduate of the Focus St. Louis Coro Women In Leadership (WIL) and Leadership St. Louis programs; and a member of the St. Louis Business Journal Leadership Trust.

“For most of my career, I have seen how the lack of equitable distribution of resources, such as education, grocery stores, housing, and green spaces has affected the lives of those living in underserved neighborhoods in the St. Louis community. One of the things that struck me the most about the people we served at each organization I worked for was the lack of access to basic needs that most people took for granted. That is why I was excited and honored to join the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank because I have seen firsthand the struggle families go through when they don’t have what they need to be successful. We don’t just provide diapers and period supplies to those who need them, we provide hope, dignity, and understanding.”

During the month of October, both the Olin Fellows (10/9/21 from 10am - 12pm) and the Chancellor's Fellows (10/16/21 from 10am - 12pm) will have an opportunity to volunteer at the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank.

At 7:30pm, we will enjoy a concert by Ferguson native Keyon Harrold who grew up one of 16 children in a family that prioritized music and community across generations. His grandfather was a police officer who retired from the force to find a drum and bugle corps for local youth, both of his parents were pastors, and nearly all of his siblings sing and perform music today. After leaving St. Louis for New York to study at The New School, Harrold landed his first major gig with Common, an experience which he says broadened his musical horizons beyond jazz to include funk, Afrobeat, R&B, and hip hop. Soon he was performing with stars like Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Eminem, Maxwell, and Anthony Hamilton. He continues to create music that combines jazz with other genres, helping to broaden the appeal of the music and bring people together. Harrold was named the new Creative Advisor for Jazz St. Louis in 2021.
