Every day, thousands of parents across the Hoosier state must ask themselves: “Food, medicine or diapers?”
The lack of clean diapers has links to maternal depression and health concerns for baby and can impact a child’s access to early learning. By distributing diapers to non-profit partner organizations, including food pantries, homeless and domestic violence shelters, day care programs, foster care programs and children’s hospitals, the Indiana Diaper Bank provides low-income children with the basic necessity that every child deserves in order to be healthy and happy.
Mark Cannon and his helper from Wheaton Moving & Storage – an interstate agent for Wheaton World Wide Moving – filled a straight truck with diapers and office equipment for the Indiana Diaper Bank yesterday and moved the nonprofit organization to its new location, also in Indianapolis.
Did you know:
- 1 in 3 families report not having a sufficient supply of diapers to keep their children clean, healthy and dry.
- Government programs such as SNAP and WIC cannot be used to buy diapers.
- Indiana has been named a diaper desert, and Indiana Diaper Bank is the only coordinating diaper bank to address diaper need in our community.
