The statistics are humbling: one in three families struggle with diaper need. In 2011, Huggies helped fund the National Diaper Bank Network. This is Lavon and Robert’s story.
This week – Diaper Need Awareness Week – the National Diaper Bank Network and founding sponsor Huggies announced a new study, Diaper Need and Its Impact on U.S. Families, revealing one-in-three U.S. families (36%) continue to struggle with diaper need. Access to clean diapers can be a powerful thing, it’s up to us to build and empower our “Villages” of people behind a common goal of fighting diaper need in our communities.
Those interested in helping families in diaper need can support the National Diaper Bank Network and its member diaper bank programs by making a monetary contribution at nationaldiaperbanknetwork.org. Individuals can also visit a local diaper bank or even host a diaper drive with your neighborhood, school or local organization. In addition, Huggies enables its rewards members to donate their Huggies Rewards Points to the National Diaper Bank Network by visiting Huggies.com/rewards. The National Diaper Bank Network has diaper banks in 47 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. To find a diaper bank near you, visit nationaldiaperbanknetwork.org.
Huggies – the fastest growing diaper brand in U.S. hospitals – believes deeply in the Power of Hugs, which is why every diaper and wipe is inspired by a parent’s embrace. The Huggies No Baby Unhugged program helps ensure all babies get the hugs they need to thrive by supporting hugging programs in hospitals and donating diapers across the country.
