Babies go through a LOT of diapers, about $80 in diapers per month! That is a lot of money for anyone but a real struggle for those with low income. In fact, not having enough diapers prevents moms from going to work because child-care requires parents to provide diapers. Diapers are essential for the well-being of Ohio’s families. Sadly, many babies don’t have the clean diapers they need. Of Ohio’s 416,763 kids under the age of 3, 25% of them live in homes that earn less than 100% of the Federal Poverty Level.
The struggle is a daily one. The cost of infant care in two-parent comes equates to 11% of total income. The cost of infant care in a single parent home equals 43%!
Our friends at Huggies and Meijer have teamed up for the fourth year to help struggling families with diapers! Huggies No Baby Unhugged program allows shoppers at Meijer to make a difference. For every pack of Huggies purchased at Meijer, Meijer will donate $1 and Huggies will donate a day’s worth of diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network!
Together, they are helping babies across the Midwest receive the ‘hugs’ they need in the form of diapers.
Ohio Diaper Banks are helping to ensure every child has enough diapers to stay clean, dry, and healthy. If you or someone you love suffers with a diaper need in Summit and Portage County, contact the Portage-Summit Diaper Bank.
When you shop your local Meijer and purchase Huggies diapers between now and January 2, 2017, you will be making a difference in the lives of those struggling with a diaper need. This is an excellent and caring way to help families in need this Christmas season.
