Feed your family…or diaper your baby. Could you choose? 

Every day thousands of parents across the Washington, DC metropolitan area must ask themselves that question. DC Diaper Bank believes that no one should ever have to make that choice, and with your help, we’re making sure fewer families must. We know that diapers are only the beginning of what our struggling families need — they need comprehensive social services that address a range of issues from food and diapers to medical and mental health.  That’s why we partner with organizations across the region offering whole family care.  But there’s more that we can all do together.  

So, what do we do about it? Here’s what we are doing – won’t you join us?

Start TALKING about the reality of parenting in poverty.  What questions do you have about parenting in poverty? Think others have the same ones?  Start asking people!

LEARN about the issue. Here’s a good read to the start.

Make the connection between PEACE & LOVE and FOOD & DIAPERS.  Ensuring families have stability in food and essential resources helps reduce parental stress and creates a more stable and healthy environment for the entire family. 

DONATE diapers, dollars, or food/formula. Have other items? From baby stuff to office furniture, we might be able to put them to good use.  Drop us a line.
