Imagine your child having to spend from dawn to dusk in the same diaper because you don’t have the money buy the six to ten diapers she needs in a day.
What you are imagining is the reality for one in three mothers in the U.S. who struggles to provide her baby with clean, dry diapers. Those experiencing this “diaper need” have difficulty with stress management and depression, which in turn negatively affects their children’s health and development.
The Junior League of New Orleans Diaper Bank helps families from the bottom up. Leveraging the strength of our entire membership, we raise our community’s awareness of “diaper need,” host diaper drives, buy diapers at a highly discounted rate, provide volunteer support for sorting, packing, storing, and distributing diapers.
