Why is there a Great Diaper Drive?
 
Most in our community are one or two paychecks away from financial dire straits.  Many parents struggle to afford diapers. They’re forced to choose between food, medicine, rent, light bill, gas to get to work or diapers. 
 
What’s happening? Babies stay in dirty diapers longer, parents recycle dirty diapers, or create makeshift diapers using stuff around the house including rags/tissue and grocery bags.   All this leads to health issues, neglect and increases a baby’s chances for physical abuse. 
 
•        Nearly 1 in 3 low-income families struggle to afford enough diapers. 
•        Low income families spend twice as much on diapers as families that have access to bulk buying options.
•        There’s no federal assistance for purchasing diapers. This includes older special needs kids.  Diapers are considered a luxury item.  
•        The majority of daycares don’t accept cloth diapers.  If a baby doesn’t go to daycare, parents can’t go to work.
 
The Great Diaper Drive was created to help babies in our community. This year marks number five. In 2016 we achieved a major milestone - establishing a  diaper bank through The Food Bank of North Alabama.
