As a co-founder and the operational arm of the Junior League of Lincoln Diaper Bank, the Center strives to protect and provide for Lincoln's most vulnerable residents - babies - with monthly diaper distributions for low-income families. Diapers can be an insurmountable expense for low-income families, costing as much as $80 per month. Babies suffering diaper need -- the insufficient supply of diapers to stay clean, dry and healthy -- may experience increased health disparities, including diaper rashes, urinary tract infections and more. A lack of clean diapers for her child can negatively impact a mother's mental health. And diaper need can impede a parent's ability to get and maintain employment, as most daycare facilities require children to have a sufficient supply of disposable diapers to attend.
To participate in the Center's diaper program, simply visit during distribution hours and let the folks at check-in know that you need diapers.
Masks are required for all staff, volunteers and participants during distribution, regardless of vaccination status, to protect everyone from COVID-19 and its more contagious variants.
