Just A Few More Days To Donate To The KidsFirst Diaper Drive

There are only a few more days to donate to KidsFirst "No Baby Left Behind" Diaper Drive!

Donate much needed diapers through February 18 at various locations, or you can even make a monetary donation online!

-Diapers and wipes cost about $100/month per child.
-Purchasing diapers is not covered by government systems as they are considered "hygiene items."
-The cost forces some families to reuse disposable diapers, or to leave babies in diapers longer than they should, which could lead to diaper rash, infections and other health problems.
-Babies who have diaper rash tend to cry more. More crying, coupled with the stress of living in need, raises the chances of child abuse.

-The vast majority of daycare facilities require disposable diapers.
-Many low-income families don't have access to washers and dryers. Most laundromats prohibit the washing of cloth diapers for sanitary reasons.

Donate Online- CLICK HERE, select "diaper drive" as the gift designation. A donation of $40 will buy 200 diapers and/or diaper wipes for children in crisis!

Donate In Person- Please purchase diapers and/or baby wipes and bring them to one of KidsFirst's Family Resource Centers.
