Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry and healthy, and it’s a reality in our city. There are over 16,000 diaper-wearing children in the Greater Cincinnati area experiencing diaper need each month. At an average rate of six diapers per day per child (and more than double that for newborns), diaper-wearing children in poverty in the United States require more than 5.8 billion diapers annually to keep them clean, dry and healthy.
The facts are staggering: Every day, 1 in 3 families in America struggle to afford diapers for their children.
Help us support the Madeira Preschool and Madeira Moms as they partner with Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank to meet this critical need. Their goal is to run The World's Largest Diaper Drive by collecting 200,000 diapers in the weeks of April 17-30.
Bring packages of clean and unused diapers to the church office or place them in the collection bin by the cry room door in the Entry Foyer.
