Why a Diaper Bank?
1 in 3 US families needs help paying for diapers.
Infants need up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8.
Disposable diapers can cost $70 to $80 per month per baby.
The Warren County Diaper Bank was created to meet a community need. Families who are already struggling financially have a hard time keeping diapers in stock for their little ones. With your help, we can alleviate this financial strain and make sure our community's most vulnerable citizens have this most basic of needs met.

A few other notes:
● Only the parent or legal guardian may request diapers.
● We cannot accommodate requests for specific brands of diapers.
● We make every effort to accommodate diaper sizes Newborn to 6, although availability is limited to stock on hand. Please make sure you register each month to guarantee size availability.
● Diapers distributed may not meet all your diaper needs; this program is intended to be supplemental.
● We ask that you wear a mask and stay in your vehicle on pick-up day due to social distancing. Short Years Partnership staff or volunteers will assist you.
