About the Event

Diapers can cost $80 or more a month per child and are not food-stamp eligible.  The poorest families use 14 percent of their income for diapers alone - an average of $1000 per child each year.  Single moms struggle the most - without diapers, their children can't go to day care, and they can't go to work.

Stretching time between diaper changes to make limited resources last can lead to serious health problems, such as urinary tract or staph infections.   And no family should have to make a choice between buying diapers and paying for food, rent or utilities, such as heat.
