DIAPER BANK

The United Way of Milford has established the Diaper Bank to keep local babies healthy and happy by providing access to diapers for families in need and promoting partner programs to improve health and self-sufficiency in our community.

Our Diaper Bank is designed to expand awareness and work with local businesses, schools, civic and faith-based groups to receive donations. On average, a child can go through at least 10-14 diapers a day. Most childcare centers, even free and subsidized facilities require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers. Many parents cannot go to work or to school if they can’t leave their children at childcare. The cost of an adequate supply of diapers can run over $100 per month, pushing a shoestring budget to its breaking point.

The United Way of Milford’s goal is to help ensure that all children in the Milford community have access to diapers and ‘no child has a wet behind’.
