DIAPERS FOR BABIES
We are part of the National Diaper Bank
Walk the Walk Foundation is part of the National Diaper Bank Network, helping many organizations with their diaper donations.
Our Diapers for Babies Program now supports fifteen distribution partners across Anne Arundel County.
What We Do
Over the past year, the Walk the Walk Foundation has been able to help many organizations with diaper donations. We organize the diapers we receive, repackage them into groups of twenty-five, and then give them to local non-profits, food, baby pantries, and shelters, who then distribute the diapers to families who need them. We are excited to be able to help the community in this way.
Walk the Walk Foundation is not a direct service provider but we have several diaper pantry partners to whom we provide diapers on a monthly basis, you can view our pantries, host a diaper drive, or drop off diapers on the button links below:
Did you know?
1 in 2
families struggle with diaper need. Infants require up to 12 diapers a day, at a cost of $80 per month per baby.
5 million babies and toddlers under 3 years live in low-income families. Diaper need impacts children's and parents' physical, mental, and economic well-being.
Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps, and are classified with cigarettes, alcohol and
pet food as disallowed purchases.
Most childcare centers require parents to provide 4 to 6 diapers a day. Parents cannot go to work or school if they can't leave their babies at child care.
Government safety-net programs do not recognize diapers as a basic need.
Walk the Walk Foundation's Diaper Program organizes the diapers we receive, repackages them into groups of twenty-five, and then gives them to local non-profits, food, baby pantries, and shelters, who then distribute the diapers to families who need them.
