Donate Now to the Diaper Bank

We are so excited to announce the opening of Howard County Diaper Bank this Spring 2017!  This is a resource many of our CRES families will be able to access...And we need your help!

Did you know--

  • Diapers can cost $70 to $80 a month? 
  • Diapers can't be bought with food stamps or WIC?
  • People without small children rarely think about diapers and are often surprised; it is a silent crisis in the U.S. as nearly 1 in 3 families in America struggle to afford diapers for their children.
  • Most childcare programs require parents to provide diapers, so parents without sufficient diapers cannot leave their children in childcare to attend work or school.

As the holidays approach...

Please consider making a monetary donation to help stock the Diaper Bank!

Donations can be made on-line through Community Action Council's website:

(Please choose "the Diaper Bank" under Donation Restriction on the drop down menu)

Your contribution is tax deductible. Community Action Council is a 501(c)3.
