How we started
We read an article that mentioned the National Diaper Bank which helps people in different areas all over the country start their own diaper bank agency to provide diapers to families that have diaper needs.
When we realized WIC and other assistance programs do not cover diapers or laundry detergent to clean cloth diapers, that babies who stay in diapers too long are stressed along with their moms and families who listen to them cry in pain, that, in order to work you must provide your day care center with diapers, that parents often have to decide between buying food and buying diapers - we decided that it was time to act.
To provide diapers to needy families in Chicago's Southland.
Our mission is to ensure that our partner social service agencies have an adequate supply of diapers for the families they serve and to raise community awareness of the diaper need in our area.
