Fostering Change Podcast | Episode 177 | Ashley Craig
The Diaper Bank, Covering South Florida, has been operating for 11 years and has distributed over 5 million diapers, serving 3500 families each month. We are members of the National Diaper Bank Network- a collaboration of over 300 diaper banks around the nation working to end diaper inequity.
We break the cycle of diaper inequity by providing diapers to those who cannot afford them.
How do we do this? By providing P.E.A.C.E. –
Partner, Educate, Advocate, Compassion and Elevate
We PARTNER with local non-profits who serve families that fall at or below the federal poverty level to help eliminate the diaper need in Palm Beach and Broward Counties.
We EDUCATE the community on the importance of ending diaper need.
We ADVOCATE for federal assistance to families to provide diapers.
We provide COMPASSION as a dedicated resource to so many partners and families in our community.
We work to ELEVATE the awareness of diaper need and provide families and children the opportunity to ELEVATE and shine.
