Stork & Company will be hosting a week long diaper drive at multiple Milwaukee Public Library Locations starting on Child Health Day, October 3rd through the 7th.

These diapers will go to multiple hospitals, health centers, and maternal and child services where they will be distributed to families in need.

For struggling families, purchasing diapers can be a hard cost to manage. An adequate quantity of diapers can cost $100 or more per month, and cloth diapers are more often than not not accepted at licensed day care centers. Most coin operated laundromats also do not allow parents to wash cloth diapers for health and sanitary reasons. Unfortunately, services such as WIC and SNAP do not cover the cost of diapers for families. Due to this, some low-income families have their babies spend a day or more in one diaper, leading to potential health and abuse risks. (Information taken from “The Diaper Bank”)
