King County Council Recognizes Diaper Need Awareness Week

King County Council Recognizes Diaper Need Awareness Week with WestSide Baby and Eastside Baby Corner.

Best way to keep a baby happy? Keep them fed and KEEP THEM DRY!!

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.”

“Both of these organizations do amazing work providing for the needs of children. For example, I am always impressed by the number of diapers they distribute in a year,” said Councilmember Kathy Lambert. “Their contributions to our region and many families is immense and so appreciated. My hope is that they and their many volunteers continue to feel the support from the community and are increasingly able to meet the needs for more and more families facing financial stresses.”
