Can you imagine having to choose between feeding your child and changing her diaper?
1 in 3 families in the United States struggle to buy diapers
This is just one of the startling statistics highlighted in Huggies Every Little Bottom study from June 2010.
Nestlings and The National Diaper Bank Network are preparing for the first-ever Diaper Need Awareness Week, September 10-17, 2012 so that more people can be aware of the impact diaper need has on a family and find out what a difference a diaper makes in the life of a child. Across the country, there will be diaper-need focused events including local area diaper drives, discussion panels on why diapers matter, and fundraising events.
Want to help provide clean diapers to more families throughout Ottawa County?
Contact us to have your school, daycare, business, or church be part of the new national event by holding a diaper drive, making a donation, or sponsoring another event during Diaper Need Awareness Week September 10-17, 2012. Some individuals have already begun planning a diaper drive – collecting diapers among their own family and friends to donate to Nestlings.
We are excited for this opportunity to continue working within our community so that more babies can stay dry and healthy because of a supply of clean diapers.
