Proceeds and donations will benefit the local families that we serve.🙌🙏 #repost @mydarlingdoula and @bottlesnbottoms are working together to collect diapers for local families in need, during Diaper Need Awareness Week (September 26-October 2, 2016). 🚼Diaper Need Facts🚼
✴Disposable diapers cost $70 to $100 per month per baby,averaging around $1200 a year for one child; ✴1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need;
Federal assistance programs,such as SNAP (formerly called food stamps) and WIC, do not cover
diapers; ✴5.3 million children in the U.S. aged three or younger live in poor or low-income families; ✴No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers; ✴Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large “big box” store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers; ✴Infants can require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8. 🚼What to Donate🚼
✴We’re accepting diapers (sizes newborn-6). Our current biggest need for diapers is sizes 4, 5, and 6, but all sizes are welcome. ✴Unexpired infant formula
✴New and gently used baby carriers and infant Onsies (sizes newborn- 12 months)
Join us on Saturday, September 30th for “Happy Hour” and enjoy light refreshments while you donate.
