UWHC Diaper Drive

The United Way of Hampshire County's 2018 Diaper Drive will run between August 1st and August 29th!

What is Diaper Need?
Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to make sure babies and toddlers remain clean, dry and healthy. 1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need. Diapers are a basic need for all babies and their families, yet some care givers are not able to provide enough diapers to get through the day.

Why is it important?
Infants and Toddlers need about 8 to 12 diapers per day. Diapers can cost over $100 per month, per child. Because of this, many families decide between changing a diaper or paying a utility bill or buying food each month. Food Stamps and WIC cannot be used to buy diapers even though diapers are a basic need for infants and toddlers.

How can you help?
Stop by one of our Diaper Drop Off locations (list below) and drop off a box of disposable diapers or some wipes.  The sizes that are most needed are 4,5,and 6. Pull-Up training pants are helpful too! Our goal this year is 25,000 diapers and 25,000 wipes! Please help us wipe out diaper need by making a donation today!

Where do the diapers and wipes go?
All of the diapers and wipes collected will go to some of our amazing partner agencies who have their own diaper banks for families in need:
-Amherst Survival Center
-Easthampton Community Center
-Northampton Survival Center in Northampton & Goshen
-It Takes a Village
-Jubilee Cupboard at Trinity Episcopal Church in Ware
