The Need

The need for diapers in low-income or poor families is constantly on the rise. In fact, according to the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN), one in three families in the United States is affected by not having enough diapers to keep their babies and toddlers clean, dry and healthy. More than 5.2 million children living in low-income households are at risk for serious skin irritations and infections, due to families resorting to reusing diapers.

Nurses have long been working to address this critical health issue within the nation. For the fourth year in a row, the nurses of AWHONN are kicking off the 2018 Diaper Drive to collect diapers for families in need. This year, our goal to collect and provide more than 300,000 diapers to families in need. 


We’re also issuing a challenge to all Sections & Chapters—get your group involved! We would like to raise the number of sections and chapters involved with the drive from 50% to 75% (38!) by year’s end, and we’d like to say thanks to our Sections & Chapters AWHONN nurses have collected and provided more than 1 million diapers to families in need – will you join with your nurse colleagues to help us do that?
