Did you know that prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, one in three families in the United States couldn’t afford diapers for their children? Fast forward to today and that number is growing exponentially due to the coronavirus crisis.
The Junior League of Boca Raton is doing their best to provide diapers to families in need in our community but they need your help! Here’s what you can do — if you have extra diapers, email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will organize a time to do a (safe) pick-up for the products. You can also use the Junior League’s Amazon wish list to have diapers shipped directly to their headquarters.
“With so many people out of work due to the pandemic, the need for diapers even greater than ever,” Cristy Stewart-Harfmann, President of the Junior League said. “Organizations throughout the area that serve children are reaching out to us asking for help and we expect these calls will increase.”
The Junior League of Boca Raton Diaper Bank distributes over 600,000 diapers annually serving 2,000 children and partners with 22 local agencies.
