Low-income families often have the daily stress of choosing between food and diapers. Prolonged wearing of a wet diaper causes diaper rash and a crying baby leads to more stress in the home.
Join us for the Seventh Annual Cobb Diaper Day on October 26, 2015, at 5:00 PM at Glover Park on the Marietta Square.
Throughout October, help us reach the goal of collecting more than 100,000 diapers for low-income families with infants and young children.We are collecting all sizes of diapers!
2015 Cobb Diaper Day
Make a difference in our community.
Local agencies, such as the Center for Family Resources, MUST Ministries, Reconnecting Families, Sweetwater Mission, United Military Care and the YWCA of Northwest Georgia can only dispense diapers four times a year to their clients, due to the lack of resources.
In these tough economic times, low-income families face the facts that:
Food stamps do not include hygiene products such as diapers.
On average, the cost to purchase diapers is approximately $100/month.
Day care centers require parents to provide their own diapers.
Since 2009, Cobb Children's Fund has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for low-income families and children in need in our community. Contribute through donations and support!
