January – June of 2021 the Center for People in Need served close to 3000 children with packages of 25 diapers each.
According to the National Diaper Bank Network, 1 in 3 American families with small children reports experiencing diaper need. Since diapers can cost anywhere between $70 to $80 a month per baby, most parents who experience diaper need must decide on whether they can provide diapers or some other necessity for their families that month. Despite the apparent need, there are still no federal or state child safety-net programs that provide funding specifically for the purchase of diapers. SNAP and WIC assistance cannot be used to purchase diapers.
The Junior League of Lincoln Diaper Bank, in partnership with the Center for People in Need and Community Action, focus on providing diapers to over 6,000 children in Lancaster County that may experience diaper need. The Diaper Bank will be housed at the Center for People in Need.
