The Impact

    • Since inception in 2017, the JLC Diaper Bank has distributed more than 810,500 diapers to 13 community partner organizations across the Lowcountry. The JLC Diaper Bank has served over 16,615 families experiencing diaper need.

Did you know?

  • 1 in 2 families in the US reports struggling with diaper need.
  • Infants and toddlers require six to ten diapers per day.
  • An adequate supply of diapers is a basic need and is essential to a child’s healthy development.
  • Government programs like WIC and SNAP do not cover diapers.

For countless families, having enough diapers is a constant struggle. Without diapers, children cannot attend daycare, which may prevent parents from making an income. Diapers are not funded by WIC and SNAP programs, and without this financial assistance, babies are left in their diapers longer, leading to severe diaper rash that could lead to other medical problems.

The Junior League of Charleston Diaper Bank was created in 2017 to fill the gap of this overlooked need in the community. The Junior League of Charleston Diaper Bank collects, packages and works with partner organizations to distribute diapers throughout the Lowcountry.

The Junior League of Charleston is a member of the National Diaper Bank Network
