NeighborImpact Launches Diaper Bank

Central Oregon—NeighborImpact is happy to announce the launch of a Central Oregon diaper bank.

On average, diapers cost $1,200 a year for one child, posing a financial hardship on half of American families. Diapers are a basic health necessity, but no government programs exist to help parents with this cost—neither WIC nor SNAP covers these supplies.

Families enrolled in NeighborImpact’s Head Start and Early Head Start programs will now have the opportunity to receive one case of diapers per child, per month. While the number of diapers in each case varies depending on size, families could receive between 125-300 diapers or 75 pull-ups per month. Pullups, briefs, and a variety of sizes and styles will be available for all ages of children, including older children and those with special needs.

“There is a real need for this service in Central Oregon and we are excited to be able to fill that gap for our Head Start and Early Head Start families,” said NeighborImpact Early Head Start & Head Start Director, Kim Brown.

The program expects to provide diapers for more than 600 Central Oregon families.

Media are invited to attend a diaper distribution bus loading event where staff and diaper bank recipients will be available for interviews.
