Day 3 Topic: My local diaper resource is…
If a family in your community struggled to afford diapers, where could they get diapers?
I want you to find out what agencies supply diapers for young families and where you can refer your friends who might be the 1 in 3 who can’t afford clean diapers.
This could be a disposable diaper bank or it could be a cloth bank. It could be a local charity group or womens shelter.
If you don’t have a local resource recognize that. You can also take the moment today to highlight other conversations like national support banks or how to start a diaper bank. I will more information on this coming in the next few months.
