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, which collects, packages and works with community partner organizations to distribute diapers to the community, launched in 2017 to address the growing need of diaper assistance for families in the Lowcountry. Due to various restrictions, diapers are not funded by government-based assistance programs, such as WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Without this financial assistance, many families are unable to afford and change their children’s diapers as often as needed, which can then lead to health problems.
Join us in showing your support for “Diaper Need Awareness Week” September 23-29, 2019. The Junior League of Charleston is thrilled to partner with both the City of Charleston and the state of South Carolina to draw awareness to this growing community need. Click here to learn more.
