Sponsor a Diaper Drive

  • Infants need up to 12 diapers per day; toddlers about 8 diapers per day.
  • An adequate supply of disposable diapers can cost over $100.00 per month.
  • Diapers are not available through any public assistance type program.
  • In low-income households, babies often spend the entire day or longer in a single diaper, because the family cannot afford to buy an adequate supply of diapers.
  • Inadequate diaper changing increases the risk of numerous health problems including diaper rash.
  • A baby crying from being in a soiled diaper for a prolonged period of time may be at a greater of physical abuse by the caregiver.
  • Childcare centers require parents to provide disposable diapers for their child.
