Inland NW Baby recently held its 3rd Stuff The Bus community diaper drive during which we gathered diapers and funds totalling nearly 50,000 diapers! How long will that last you is a question we have been asked a lot lately. The answer is not a simple one. If we add no additional programs from our waiting list or serve no additional children from our existing programs it will last us for about 9 months. But that is really not an option for us. We have many programs that would like to become diaper network distribution partners and we want to incerase the level of distribution of existing partners. So we continue to work to gather more diapers and hold more diaper drives.
The National Diaper Bank Network does an excellent job of detailing the level of need in our country in this recent blog entry: http://nationaldiaperbanknetwork.org/blog/so-how-many-diapers-do-we-need.
Diapers are not an option for babies. Thank you for your continued support as we work to provide this basic neccessity for babies in need in our Spokane and Inland NW community.
