Capital Diaper Bank and Anthem HealthKeepers are holding a diaper drive through June 2. The “Diaper Change” campaign focuses on providing diapers to low-income families in central Virginia.
Diapers are a necessary part of day-to-day life for young children and their families but providing them is not always easy. A healthy change of diapers costs nearly $100 each month and one in three American mothers struggle to provide diapers for their babies. Diapers are not typically covered by social service programs.
Babies in low-income households often spend an entire day in a single diaper creating many health problems, including skin disease and staph infections. A baby crying from being in a soiled diaper for prolonged periods of time may also be at a greater risk for child abuse.}
