Diaper Need Awareness 

Diaper Need Awareness

A growing movement in our state is focused on the most basic needs of infants and toddlers….diapers.

Research indicates that one in three families do not have a sufficient supply of diapers to keep their baby clean, dry and healthy. To help bring attention to the diaper need facing struggling families, the National Diaper Bank Network created Diaper Need Awareness Week. Governor Walker has signed a proclamation in our state observing Diaper Need Awareness Week from September 26 – October 2, 2016.

The Fox Cities Diaper Bank helps to address the diaper need by collecting, storing and distributing free diapers to local families experiencing financial hardship. Our local Diaper Bank relies on the community’s support through a variety of ways, but most especially through the Post-Crescent’s annual Dollars for Diapers campaign which concludes on October 2.
