By focusing on diaper need, the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) works to meet the basic needs of all American children and families.
Our mission is to raise awareness of diaper need, strengthen community-based diaper banks, and generate donations of dollars and diapers, so that all babies remain clean, dry and healthy.
