DID YOU KNOW?
About 30% of mothers report not being able to afford diapers for their children, and one in twelve admit to stretching their diaper supply by leaving their child in a wet diaper or partially cleaning the diaper and reusing it?
The Mission of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Diaper Bank is to provide diapers to disadvantaged families and partnering community organizations, who support families in need. We are committed to providing education, support and advocacy as a way to foster strong community ties and values while aiding families in gaining access to the resources needed to succeed and flourish.
Over 1 Million diapers donated to families in need!
DIAPER DAYS ( Every 1st Thursday Monthly)
In September 2016, We started out small but have grown substantially in the last few years. We now serve over 2000 individual families per month and provide diapers to 10 partnering agencies.
We take referrals for our pantry program from most Social Service Agencies in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami Dade. We partner with 211-Broward, Broward Health Department, WIC, Florida Essential needs Coalition.
What is the Fort Lauderdale Diaper Bank you ask?
We’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports low-income families including the elderly, disabled, veterans, and babies. We are working to eliminate diaper need throughout South Florida. We collect, store and distribute free diapers and essentials to other nonprofits that we partner with, family service agencies and shelters in our community. Our goal is to ensure that every baby in South Florida has enough diapers to remain clean, dry and healthy.
