As a part of Better Hearing and Speech Month, we are working with a local non-profit, Help A Mother Out, to collect diapers during our Mother’s Day diaper drive! Help A Mother Out is a non-profit organization that works to improve baby and family well-being by increasing access to diapers for families in need.
Our participation will help families who are unable to provide an adequate monthly supply of fresh diapers for their children. Our efforts in this diaper drive will go a long way to ensuring that these babies get a healthier start in life.
Our Diaper Drive will take place during the entire month of May. You can drop-off your donated diapers at our office during usual business hours. You can also participate in our virtual diaper drive! The larger sizes (4, 5, and 6) are always in the highest demand, but every size is needed and accepted. Wipes are also accepted. You can even donate opened packages or loose diapers!
The dirty truth about diapers:
Public assistance programs (like food stamps) don’t cover the cost of diapers.
22% of all children under five years old in the U.S. live in poverty and 1 out of every 3 families struggle to afford diapers.
If a family can’t afford diapers, a baby may spend extended periods of time in the same soiled diaper.
Diapers cost $75-100/month out of pocket which means that families are choosing between diapers and other basic needs like food, rent and utilities.
On behalf of Help a Mother Out and the families we will help, thank you!
