UWHC Diaper Drive


Help Us Wipe Out Diaper Need!

2017 Diaper Drive July 31 - August 28
 

WHAT IS DIAPER NEED?

Diapers are as essential as food and shelter. Yet, they are not recognized as a basic need. Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to make sure babies and toddlers remain clean, dry, and healthy. Some families face having to clean out and reuse soiled diapers or have to choose between diapers and other basic needs like food. In our community, families struggle with diaper need every day.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

•    1 out of 3 families struggle to buy diapers
•    Diapers can cost over $100 per month, per baby
•    Food Stamps and WIC cannot be used to buy diapers
•    Infants and toddlers need about 8-12 diapers per day

WHAT WE NEED

•    Disposable diapers in all sizes; greatest need for sizes 4, 5, 6
•    Baby wipes in all quantities
•    Disposable pull-up training pants

WHAT’S THE GOAL OF THE HAMPSHIRE COUNTY DIAPER DRIVE?

25,000 diapers and 50,000 baby wipes!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE DIAPERS COLLECTED IN THE DRIVE?

They will be distributed to families in need through: Amherst Survival Center,  Easthampton Community Center, Northampton Survival Center in Northampton & Goshen, It Takes a Village, Hilltown Community Health Centers and The Jubilee Cupboard at Trinity Episcopal Church in Ware
