NATIVITY SCHOOL MENLO PARK - DIAPER DRIVE FOR HELP A MOTHER OUT

Help a Mother Out® works to improve baby and family well being by increasing access to diapers for families in need.

A family’s access to a reliable supply of clean diapers reduces the risk of infectious disease outbreaks, improves baby’s health and comfort, and enables baby’s participation in early care and education programs. Our vision is a day when every baby has a healthy supply of diapers.

WHY DIAPERS MATTER
Diapers cost between $80 and $100 per month. That’s $2,850 to diaper one child with regular changes until potty training–a huge expense for the over 5 million low-income families with young children living in the U.S. today. Public assistance programs like food stamps don’t cover diapers.  Diapers give mothers and babies a chance.
  • Health and Well-Being - If a family can’t afford diapers, a baby may spend extended periods of time in a soiled or even re-used diaper.  This can lead to serious health problems for baby and disease outbreaks for entire communities.
  • Access to Education - A supply of clean diapers is required to attend most childcare programs. So without diapers, toddlers don’t get a fair start in their education.
  • Self-Sufficiency - When toddlers can’t go to childcare programs, adults remain under-employed. Something so basic as a diaper can actually have a big impact on a family’s ability to become financially self-sufficient.
Help a Mother Out is on a mission to ensure that every baby has a healthy supply of diapers. So far, we’ve provided nearly 10 million diapers to babies and families in need. We can do more together.
