National Diaper Need Awareness Week is an annual campaign, launched by the National Diaper Bank Network in 2012. Diaper banks from across the country work together with their community, and state and local governments to raise awareness about diaper needs within their community, and plan events to rally sustainable support for their diaper bank programs.
Diapers are critical to keeping children clean and healthy. Unfortunately, 1 in 2 families experience diaper need. We work with over 70 partners to identify families experiencing diaper need and each month distribute over 200,000 diapers to our partners to provide to children that need them. Together we can continue to provide this basic essential to more children in St. Louis and surrounding cities and work to end diaper need in our community.
