October is Diaper Need Awareness Month 

A lack of diapers poses a real problem for children and their families. It is a problem that is often overlooked- even though it is a basic need. 
Did you know…
  • 1 in 3 families lack access to clean diapers
  • 2 million Texas children live in poverty- and we tend to overlook the critical hardship that affects those families: Diapers
  • Babies use 6-12 diapers daily – a $125/month cost to families
Why donate diapers?
  • A lack of diapers leads to maternal and family stress and depression
  • Diapers help a family return to the workforce- helping to end the cycle of poverty
  • Diapers allow children to attend school.
  • Diapers provide healthy living options.
  • Diapers let children enroll in daycare.

C’mon San Anton!  It’s time for a change in diapering. Here is a great rainy day and EVERYDAY project for us!

 

Head to Target, HEB, Walmart, etc. and grab a package or two (or ten) of diapers and watch how a small compassionate action makes a HUGE impact in the life of a family in your city or neighborhood.
