Quick Facts

With 5.8 million babies in the U.S. aged three or younger living in poor or low-income families.

Disposable diapers costing up to $100 per month per baby, and diapers cannot be purchased through any government assistance program.

One out of 3 families struggle to buy diapers.

Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large discount store can double or triple the monthly cost.

For sanitary reasons, coin-operated Laundromats often don’t allow customers to wash cloth diapers.

Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about eight.

Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps, and are classified with cigarettes, alcohol and pet food as disallowed purchases.

You can easily organize and run a drive by yourself, but think about hosting a drive with a few friend. You maximize networks for spreading the word and minimize the work by sharing it among a few people friends.

  1. Pick a place!

So many places are ideal for a diaper drive!

Your church/temple/mosque/place of worship

Your workplace

The Metro Detroit Diaper Bank is being birthed as a product of an outreach project, the “Stork’s Nest Club”, of a local faith based organization. The Bank is completely independent and has been chosen by the Public Allies of Metro Detroit, a program of the University of Michigan-Dearborn and is a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network, as a Team Service Project to establish and allow the Diaper Bank to operate as its own entity. During the project development stage Carter Metropolitan CME Church will serve as fiduciary until the 501(c) 3 process is completed.
