Project Undercover believes that every child has the right to a clean, dry bottom. That’s why we provide diapers, socks, underwear and baby wipes to help the approximately 20,000 children under age 7 throughout Rhode Island living in poverty. (There are approximately 45,000 total children living in poverty in RI.)
Project Undercover collects and distributes these items to more than two-dozen community action partnerships and social service agencies throughout the state based on data from the RI Department of Human Services. These partner agencies are then able to provide supplies directly to struggling families in their communities.
In August we celebrated our 25th anniversary – not bad for a small, all-volunteer organization. Because of our low costs and the power of our distribution network, a donation to Project Undercover goes directly to making an impact in the lives of children in need. For every $1 donated we are able to purchase approximately 10 diapers.
Project Undercover is the only organization in Rhode Island that is a member of the National Diaper Bank Network and the Baby2Baby National Network. We are the only statewide diaper bank in the country. We are a GuideStar Gold certified 501(c)3 nonprofit.
