those in need
Local agencies, such as the Center for Family Resources, lifeSAFE Resources, MUST Ministries, Simple Needs Georgia and Sweetwater Mission 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.

Join us for the Eighth Annual Cobb Diaper Day on October 23, 2017, 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!
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.
