Disposable diapers are a significant cost for low-income families and cannot be purchased with any current state or federal child safety-net program. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP (formerly called “food stamps”) and WIC (Women, Infants and Children) both exclude diapers. Cloth diapers are also not an option for families who use day care centers, public laundromats, or group residential facilities.
No parent or guardian should have to choose between clean diapers for their children and paying for their next meal or utility bill. With your help, we can bring in the new year with the spirit of community and supporting the organizations in our area who help families and our tiniest residents all year.
