Organize a Diaper Drive
The average cost of supplies and necessities for the first month of a baby’s life is over $900. And until a child is potty-trained, usually between 24-36 months, continue to cost nearly $100 a month just for diapers. Without an adequate supply of diapers children cannot go to childcare and without childcare, parents cannot go to school or work. One-in-3 moms struggle with diaper needs. Since keeping baby clean and dry is our priority, all of our little ones receive a monthly allotment of diapers and wipes.
Because there are no government agencies that provide help in this area, TryLife Center supplies nearly 20,000 diapers to our families each year. We are able to do this because of the generous contributions from local churches, clubs, schools and individuals.
Our ongoing need is for diapers sizes 3, 4, 5 and 6 and wipes to distribute to nearly 330 clients seen each year.
