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.
