THE STORY:

Virtual Diaper Drive will run from Sunday, 6/22/14 through Sunday 6/29/14

All funds collected will be used to purchase diapers for Metropolitan Ministries.

What is diaper need?
The lack of a sufficient supply of disposable diapers to remain clean, dry and healthy.
America’s babies are being shortchanged.
-With 5.8 million babies in the U.S. aged three or younger living in poor or low-income families.
-Disposable diapers costing up to $100 per month per baby, and diapers cannot be purchased through any government assistance program.
-One out of 3 families struggle to buy diapers.
-Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large discount store can double or triple the monthly cost.
-For sanitary reasons, coin-operated laundromats often don’t allow customers to wash cloth diapers.
-Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about eight.
-Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps, and are classified with cigarettes, alcohol and pet food as disallowed purchases.

The consequences of diaper need are astonishing
-Babies who remain too long in a soiled diaper are exposed to potential health risks.
-Most childcare centers, even free and subsidized facilities require parents to provide a day's supply of disposable diapers.
-Cloth diapers are not accepted at the vast majority of child care centers.
-Many parents cannot go to work or school if they can’t leave their babies at child care.
