There are so many ways to help when it comes to organizations such as the National Diaper Bank Network. Of course, there are always the amazingly helpful ways of making financial contributions if you are able, but there are also ways that you can donate your time. WestSide Baby and other diaper banks always need volunteers to sort through donations and to fill orders that will go out into the community. If you’ve got a knack for folding baby clothes, great! If you live to organize books alphabetically or diapers by size, then there is a job for you! If you’re one of those people who is incredible at getting others to take action from the ground up, starting a diaper drive in your workplace or working with community businesses to do a larger diaper drive would be something you could do. Truly, the possibilities are endless.

King County Council recognizes Diaper Need Awareness Week

September 25th, 2017

Far too many parents have to make the difficult choice of changing a diaper or letting their child stay in a soiled diaper to help extend their limited supply. The Metropolitan King County Council today recognized the week of Sept. 25-Oct. 1 as Diaper Need Awareness Week, the effort to ensure that all infants and toddlers can be clean, healthy, and dry by having the diapers they need.

“Lack of access to a supply of clean diapers can be a huge barrier to ensuring the health of vulnerable children throughout King County,” said Council Chair Joe McDermott. “Each year I am proud recognize Diaper Need Awareness Week, and organizations like Westside Baby and Eastside Baby Corner as they work combat this often overlooked problem.”
