Eastside Baby Corner announces Diaper Need Awareness Week

September 10, 2013

By Staff

Sept. 8-14 is National Diaper Need Awareness week, and Eastside Baby Corner needs diaper donations.

The average child needs about 50 diaper changes per week, but many low-income families don’t have the means to keep a reliable supply, according to EBC. Diapers can’t be purchased with food stamps or WIC vouchers, making it even more difficult for struggling families to clothe their children. Many childcare programs also require that young children have a supply of diapers, which can exclude children from participating.

Eastside Baby Corner is a member of the National Diaper Bank Network, a nonprofit organization that works to ensure children have enough diapers to be healthy. The network supports nearly 200 diaper banks nationwide. Eastside Baby Corner, will hold events throughout the week of Sept. 8 to raise awareness.
