All proceeds will benefit the diaper bank at Twice As Nice Mother & Child in Gurnee, which distributes over 100,000 free diapers to Lake County families every year. Diaper need, the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers, affects 1 in 3 families—and the poorest 20% of families spend 14% of their income on diapers. Safety net programs like food stamps and WIC do not cover diapers. With more than 48% of the nation’s children under the age of 3 living in poverty level or low-income families, there are approximately 5.4 million children who could use help. There are no state or federal programs to assist with diaper need, so diaper banks like Twice As Nice Mother & Child are able to fill that gap.
Every child deserves to have enough diapers—and every child deserves to be clean, dry and healthy. Your support of this event will help Twice As Nice Mother & Child further their efforts to close the diaper gap in Lake County.
