Why a Diaper Bank?

The Diaper Bank meets a critical community need. Consider these stats:

  • 1 in 2 US families needs help paying for diapers. 

  • Infants need up to 12 diapers per day, and toddlers about 8.

  • Disposable diapers can cost up to $80 per month per baby.

Families already struggling financially have difficulty 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 these most basic needs met.
