All Bottoms Covered Diaper Bank
The ACPMHC has just announced the launch of a new initiative: A.B.C. All Bottoms Covered diaper bank. This is an initiative to address the correlation between diaper need (affecting 1 in 3 families) and heightened risk of these same families (3 times over!) for experiencing Postpartum Depression and related mental health conditions.
Diapers are a basic need for babies, yet no social safety-net programs provide or offset the cost.
The ACPMHC will partner with existing social service agencies by distributing donated diapers and diapers purchased with donated dollars to these agencies. These agencies already provide direct services to those who are experiencing diaper need.
How can YOU or or your organization get involved?
(1) By donating DIAPERS (even opened packages- ALL sizes, even pullups or water diapers). Call us to arrange for pickup or to deliver, whatever is easiest for you.
(2) By donating DOLLARS. We have bigger bulk buying power as a diaper bank; your dollars get stretched much further.
