FOX 5 Diaper Drive: Here's how you can help the Greater DC Diaper Bank

Having a baby should be a joyous time for a woman, but when she is struggling to take care of that baby's basic needs, it can really impact her physically and emotionally.

Here are the facts:

One in three moms in our area report leaving their children in soiled diapers to make their supply last longer.

Two out of three moms report having to choose between diapers and food.

Diapers can cost between $70-$100 per month, and babies need six to 10 diapers per day.

Researchers found that 5.3 million children under the age of 3 live in poor or low income families.
Without clean diapers, babies are exposed to health risks and have greater instances of hospitalization.

Those are the facts.

Here’s another, FOX 5 DC cares! For the second year, we are helping the Greater DC Diaper Bank collect diapers and wipes for needy families in Virginia, Maryland, and the District.

Our FOX 5 Diaper Drive will kick off at First Baptist Church of Highland Park in Landover on Sunday, December 1. After the kick off you can drop off your donations at the businesses listed below or at Ambassador locations in your neighborhoods through December 20.

Last year the FOX 5 Diaper Drive collected 20,000 diapering products for needy families in our area. This year, with your help, we are hoping to break records
