Costing nearly $70-$80 a month per baby, 1 in 3 families struggle to afford an adequate amount of diapers. For many parents facing financial hardship, it comes down to the difficult decision between affording diapers, paying bills or buying groceries.
At Keeping Families Covered, we host monthly drives that collect diapers to directly benefit our on-site diaper bank and mobile diaper pantry. Currently, we distribute over 500,000 diapers to families each year. In order to maintain and surpass that number, we need help from volunteers to help host and facilitate drives each month. We also need cash donations to purchase quantities and sizes of diapers that we cannot count on from diaper drives alone.
Access to clean diapers is crucial to improving the well-being of babies and their families. When diaper banks provide one of a baby’s most basic needs, we help parents succeed.
Here's your month-to-month look at what is happening at Keeping Families Covered from diaper drives to fundraising events.
