Did you know?

  • Diapers can cost average $936 a year in South Carolina, yet the average family income of people using WIC is $14,758.
  • 13% of children under the age of 5 are SNAP recipients in South Carolina.
  • 28% of infants are WIC recipients in South Carolina
  • 1 in 3 women in the US suffer from diaper need.
  • Diapers are not funded by WIC and SNAP programs

For countless mothers, 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 developed to fill the gap of this overlooked need in the community. The Junior League of Charleston Diaper Bank will collect, package and work with partner organizations to distribute diapers to those in need throughout the Lowcountry.
