Did you know that infants use approximately 240 diapers per month? That means that a year’s supply of diapers costs just under $1,000! For single mothers who are full-time minimum wage workers they can expect to spend approximately 6 percent of their annual pay on diapers alone.
This is a crisis for lower income families as government assistance does not cover the cost of diapers.
When living in Dallas I learned that a local school needed immediate help and I was called to action. I was saddened to learn that many families were re-using peed diapers. The school’s community consists of parents and guardians of children who’s income often falls below the poverty line. While the situation seemed dire to me, I saw hope as these families steadily showed up to better their quality of life. Providing diapers was the way I saw to be of service.
