About the Event

Why Diapers?

The need for diapers in low-income or poor families is constantly on the rise. According to the National Diaper Bank Network, on average, each infant requires 6-12 diapers everyday (woahh a lot). This can rack up cost to 70 to 80 dollars extra per month. In order to alleviate this added expense, families often attempt to reuse diapers or not change them as frequently, As a result, babies can be placed at risk for serious skin irritations and infections.

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of external help for these families and babies. There are no state or federal programs that allocate extra funds to help specifically buy diapers. Furthermore, many childcare centers do not offer free diapers and require parents to provide a supply of them in order to care for the child. However, if parents are not able to leave their children at these facilities, they cannot go to work or school, further exacerbating their financial and diaper need.

We would like to ask for your help in increasing the supply of diapers to keep babies clean, dry and healthy!
