Destiny Diaper Bank Warehouse


Our 1200 sq. ft.  warehouse in Lehigh Acres  at 5583 Lee Street Unit #4, 33971 houses our infant disposable diapers, adult incontinent supplies/diapers, and inventory of items that are used for distribution and events.


We are looking to upgrade this space with shelving units to hold  the disposable diapers.


I found the shelves that we need at Costco

About Us


My husband Jack and I met 35 years ago at 1st Assembly of God here in Ft. Myers.


I came to Florida as a divorced single mom of two boys trying to make ends meet while working as an OR Tech. at Lee Memorial Hospital.


Jack had recently gone through a divorce securing custody of his 5 children.


Two weeks after meeting, Jack asked me to marry him.  Two months later we were married, with 7 children under the age of 7 years.


Jack soon realized he had a lot of mouths to feed and started his own painting business.  For the next 30 years, Brother's Painting provided for this large family of 10.  A son was born to us 6 years after becoming married. 


I came from a small town in Illinois (300 people).  Jack grew up outside Buffalo, N.Y.  (Bill's Fan)


So, city boy meets farm girl and 35 years later here we are.


We have seen our share of ups and downs.  In 1994, Jonathan ( oldest son) was attending Zion Bible College in Providence RI.  We received a call that he had passed away.  His aorta  burst. Just like that our lives were never the same.


Because of our relationship with God, we have been able to recover but never be the same.  There is always a plan and it is always good.  Sometimes we just can't see it, but it is OK.


Because of Jack's hard work in the painting business I have been privileged to be free to work in a lot of activities - giving into our community.


  • Organizing a Christian Business Expo raising over $10,000 for an Assembly of God orphanage
  • Organizing  a Citizen's For Excellence organization with 13 chapters in SWFL
  • Assisting  with all event functions at Nation's Association
  • Operational manager for Church On The Rock (Rockwall, Tx. ) food bank feeding over 7,000 a month.
  • President of Ft. Myers, Women's Aglow Light house

I have been able to stay busy.


Seven years ago, I actually ran out of things to do and that is when I had the idea for Destiny Ministries of Southwest Florida,  Inc.   I did the research on becoming a 501 c 3 non profit charity and after about a year our charity received its recognition.   We began as a women's group meeting on Saturdays for breakfast.  Not long after that I realized the need for diapers in our area and started Destiny Diaper Bank. 


At that time a public relations company - Ogilvie PR. contacted me about coming up to Chicago to share information about what we were doing.  Myself, along with 9 other diaper banks attended our first diaper summit.  We were awarded 300K diapers for our information.


Those diapers have been long gone.  We at that time had 5 distribution sites giving out almost 3,000 diapers a day.


During the last couple years we have had to re-group.  We do not have the large supply of diapers like we once did.  We need help from the community


  • One in three moms do not have the funds to be able to provide a clean change of diapers for her baby.


  • Diapers cannot be obtained from Food Stamps, WIC, Medicaid, or Medicare.


  • Some moms have had to dump out the soiled parts in a diaper and replace a wet diaper on their baby; increase the chance for disease


  • Some adults cannot afford diapers (incontinent supplies) thus sitting in wet or soiled diapers the entire day, increasing risk for disease and even death.

Our future is bright.  We have several events planned for the Fall of 2015 and we will soon be registering our 2015 - 2016 student moms. 


Some of our plans include Destiny Student Mom Center where our student moms will be able to participate in several opportunities that will benefit their future personally and successfully through education.


They will have mentoring, and also time with their own peers.


The future is bright.  Come along with us and be  apart of making it happen!
