Help Houston families diaper their babies

Diaper Need Awareness Week

Diapers -- adult and baby

HOUSTON – One in three families struggles with not having enough diapers. This week is Diaper Need Awareness Week, an initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network to get diapers to families in need.

There are a number of ways you can help get diapers to families who need them. You can visit a diaper bank in your area and donate a box of diapers. The Diaper Foundation is a Houston nonprofit organization that helps provide diaper assistance and other services for local children. Through awareness, education, and material aid to young mothers, the foundation aims to keep every child clean, dry, and healthy.

You can also donate money online at www.diaperdrive.org. Just click on “donate dollars.” Every dollar donated buys six diapers at wholesale.
