Did you know that SNAP (Food Stamps) and WIC do not cover the cost of diapers? Diapers are a high cost basic need and families living in poverty are forced to choose between purchasing diapers for their children and purchasing food for the family.Â No parent should have to make this difficult decision.
The Mother’s Day Diaper Drive is a great way for families to help families in need. Your donation of disposable diapers of any size and brand will go to Food Bank Member Agencies across the state. These agencies work everyday to help families meet their basic needs.
Take action: Collect disposable diapers of any size and brand with friends, family, or coworkers. There are many collection areas set upÂ during the month of May. See details below:
– Kidoinfo will be supporting this Diaper Drive by collecting disposable diapers at our upcoming event, Raising Kids in a Digital World on May 25, 2010 at Local 121 from 6:30-8:30pm. After the event Kidoinfo will deliver collected diapers to the RI Community Food Bank.
– Deliver them to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank at 200 Niantic Ave, Providence, Mon-Fri between 8 am — 5 pm.Â Diaper donations will be accepted through the end of May, 2010.
