 They are so much happier when their bottoms are dry.....









The Diaper Bank receives requests for 90,000+ diapers a month. With the economy as it is today, that number will be even greater. This past year the Diaper Bank distributed around 15,000 to 20,000 per month. The sources of a large percentage (50%+) of the diapers we receive each month. We haven’t received any diaper from them for the last 3 months. I just ask all Mom’s and Dad’s to think how they would have felt if they couldn’t afford diapers for their babies. I pray that this appeal touches your heart and you will step forward and donate $15.00 - $25.00 a month for a year.  This donation is Tax Deductable.

What Is Diaper Need?

The lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry and healthy.

Fast Facts

  • 5.3 million children in the U.S. aged three or younger live in poor or low-income families.
  • 1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need.
  • Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps.
  • Disposable diapers cost $70 to $80 per month per baby.
  • No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers.
  • Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large “big box” store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers.
  • Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8.

Negative Consequences

  • Babies who remain too long in a soiled diaper are exposed to potential health risks.
  • Most childcare centers, even free and subsidized facilities require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers.
  • Cloth diapers are not accepted at the vast majority of child care centers.
  • Many parents cannot go to work or school if they can’t leave their babies at child care.

The following is a poem written by Cher


She awoke this morning

Her hope no longer there

Her days were filled with hunger

She felt no one would care


Her children had no clothing

One diaper for the day

The baby’s rash was blistered

And she had no place to stay


But because of you

And donations that you gave

Her Heart was filled with love

And her Faith you helped to save


She received some diapers

and clothing to stay warm

A place to eat and sleep

And keep them safe from harm


She went to bed that night

Thanking God for You

For you were the angels

That helped to guide her through
