Spring Diaper Drive

Spring Diaper Drive “Help us Grow” April 17 -25, 2021

WHAT IS DIAPER NEED AND WHO DOES IT AFFECT?

  • Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry and healthy.
  • Despite being a basic hygiene item, diapers are not covered by government assistance programs like WIC or SNAP.
  • Infants and toddlers typically require 8-12 diaper changes per day, which can cost up to $100 every month.
  • Before the pandemic, one in three families in the U.S. struggle with diaper need. We estimate that number has increased due to the economic impacts of COVID-19.
