Dollars for Diapers

Diaper Need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep an infant or toddler clean, dry, and healthy.  

Did you know?

  • 1 in 3 mothers in the US reports struggling with diaper need.
  • Infants and toddlers require six to ten diapers per day.
  • An adequate supply of diapers is a basic need and is essential to a child’s healthy development.
  • Government programs like WIC and SNAP do not cover diapers.

For countless mothers, having enough diapers is a constant struggle. Without diapers, children cannot attend daycare, which may prevent parents from making an income. Diapers are not funded by WIC and SNAP programs, and without this financial assistance, babies are left in their diapers longer, leading to severe diaper rash that could lead to other medical problems.

The Junior League of Charleston Diaper Bank was created in 2017 to fill the gap of this overlooked need in the community. The Junior League of Charleston Diaper Bank collects, packages, and works with partner organizations to distribute diapers throughout the Lowcountry.
