A core mission of the National Diaper Bank Network is raising awareness of diaper need, and empowering people to advocate for changes in law and policy to address diaper need at the local, state, and national level. Individuals and not-for-profit organizations (like diaper banks) can lobby their elected officials to ask for laws that help ensure all children have the diapers they need to be clean, healthy, and dry.
As you get ready for your Summer barbecues and beach vacation, remember that September will be here before you know it, and so will Diaper Need Awareness Week (September 24 - September 30, 2018)! So before you pack your beach bag, consider sending a request to your governor and other elected officials for a proclamation recognizing Diaper Need Awareness Week in your state and all the towns and counties.Read More
