JLB DIAPER BANK & DIAPER NEED AWARENESS WEEK (SEPT. 25 – OCT. 1)
The JLB Diaper Bank distributes 100,000 diapers a month to 230 organizations through our partnership with the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama. Diapers are essential to a baby’s healthy development, but many babies don’t have the clean diapers they need. Did you know: 1 in 3 U.S. moms report suffering from diaper need; Government assistance programs, such as: SNAP and WIC do not cover diapers; and 32% of children in Alabama under age three live in families with incomes below the federal poverty threshold.
JLB Diaper Bank Chair, Kaitlin Schaeffer, discusses Diaper Need Awareness Week and the JLB Diaper Bank on Talk of Alabama
