Help local children in need by donating diapers | Community news

Over 10,000 children under age 3 are living in poverty in King County. Many families must choose between buying diapers and paying bills, as diapers are not covered by any government aid program, including food stamps and Women, Infant and Children (WIC) programs.

Diapers average approximately $100 per month per diapered child and a daily supply of diapers is often required to take children to day care. Some families must choose between buying diapers or food.

WestSide Baby and Eastside Baby Corner have teamed up to address the need by providing 2 million diapers to children in King County.

WestSide Baby and Eastside Baby Corner also aim to meet other needs by collecting and distributing essential items to children, free of charge, through approved social service providers throughout King County.
