The Nashville Diaper Connection said Friday it will receive a $10,000 donation from The Manning Agency.

The NDC is a non-profit whose mission is to ensure "every baby in Nashville has enough diapers to remain clean, dry and healthy."

The Manning Agency won the 2017 Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Award for demonstrating extraordinary volunteerism to make positive change happen in their community. Manning agent Martine Sanders had a story about the NDC featured on Through sharing the story on social media and the award application, the group raised $10,000 for the NDC.

“The impact of providing diapers makes to families has amazed us,” Sanders said. “A simple item like diapers can change a child’s path in life.”

“We appreciate the community support to raise the additional funds and we are honored to be able to provide Nashville Diaper Connection with an even larger donation,” said Deborah Walker, Safeco Insurance Southeast Region territory manager. “Safeco’s Make More Happen Awards recognize agents who are committed to making a difference in their local communities, and we want to encourage them and citizens in their area to directly support local charities.”

The awards focus on non-profits in the areas of health and safety, education and civil service. The Manning Agency was originally selected for a Make More Happen Award based on a photo and application demonstrating its commitment to Nashville Diaper Connection, which has distributed more than 670,000 diapers since its founding in 2013.

Safeco will select a total of 23 independent agents for the awards and donate up to $230,000 to the charitable organizations they support this year.
