National Diaper Need Awareness Week

National Diaper Need Awareness Week

September 23 – 29, 2019

 

National Diaper Need Awareness Week draws attention to the issue of diaper need in the U.S.  A signature initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network launched in 2012, the week provides individuals, organizations, communities, and elected officials the opportunity to engage in real talk and simple actions. By working together we can ensure that all babies have access to clean diapers and other basic necessities required for them to thrive and reach their full potential.   

 

One in three U.S. families struggles to provide enough diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry, and healthy.

 

We invite you to get involved. Be a part of the growing movement of  diaper bank leaders, advocates, and individuals across the U.S.
