Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep an infant or toddler clean, dry and healthy.
Diaper Need Awareness Week is an initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) created to mobilize efforts to help make a difference in the lives of the nearly 5.2 million babies in the U.S. aged three or younger who live in poor or low-income families.
Acting together — individuals, diaper banks, faith-based institutions, service providers, businesses, organizations and elected officials — we can get diapers to all babies in need.
Diaper Need Awareness Week is the perfect time to:
- Host a Diaper Drive-nothing builds awareness of diaper need like a diaper drive. It's easy, rewarding and your efforts WILL make an impact.
- Donate $$$-Throughout Diaper Need Awareness Week, Jet.com is MATCHING all donations to diaper banks around the country, including the CNY Diaper Bank. We urge you to DOUBLE your impact and make a contribution on Jet. From 9/25-10/1, go to http://go.jet.com/give-cnydiaperbank; add a donation to your cart and your contribution will be added to the CNY Diaper Bank's Jetcash account for the sole purpose of purchasing diapers for local families.
- Donate Diapers-We accept new packs and open packs of leftover diapers and pull-ups in all sizes. Bring them along to our Diaper Need Awareness Week Event on the 27th or drop them off at any of our drop-off locations.
