Junior League of Lincoln Diaper Bank

Junior League of Lincoln Diaper Bank

Across the U.S., diaper need, the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a child clean, dry, and healthy, remains a serious issue that directly impacts the physical, mental, and economic well-being of millions of children and families. According to the National Diaper Bank Network, 1 in 3 American families with small children reports experiencing diaper need. 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.

In 2018, the Junior League of Lincoln was contacted by the Center for People in Need and Community Action Partnership of Lancaster and Saunders Counties about building a community diaper bank. These organizations found that most families with young children seeking assistance also experienced diaper need, and individually, their organizations could not easily fulfill this need.

 January – June of 2021 the Center for People in Need served close to 3000 children with packages of 25 diapers each.
