those in need
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.
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.
- Declare a day in September to collect diapers from your employees, organization members or friends, or hold a diaper drive in your neighborhood. Kick-off your efforts during Diaper Need Awareness Week (Sept. 23 - Sept. 29).
- Become a sponsor.
- Call 678-296-6501 to arrange for pick-up.
- Order from Amazon and they will be directly shipped for distribution.
- Drop off your diaper donations at Glover Park on the Marietta Square on September 30, from 5-6 p.m. See the map below for directions!
