Eastside Baby Corner, through Side by Side Northwest, a King County diaper collaboration with WestSide Baby, received 400,000 diapers on May 7.
The much-needed diapers, a portion of the 1 million donated to the regional diaper collaboration by Huggies and the National Diaper Bank Network, will be used to help children in need in greater east King County. EBC distributed more than 600,000 diapers in 2013.

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.
