DIAPER BANK OF THE OZARKS
A Diaper Bank is the store house and it supplies diapers to Partnering Agencies. It is the Partnering Agencies who distribute diapers to the families in need. While the Diaper Bank supplies the needed diapers to the community, it relies on other members of the community to hold Diaper Drives, Diaper Showers, and for individuals and businesses to provide monetary and in-kind donations to sustain the supply in the store house.
Disposable or Cloth Diapers?
See our "Cloth Diaper Option" Page for a discussion that will help you make the right choice for your family.
*Programs such as WIC, TANF and Food Stamps do not pay for or provide diapers.
*Childcare Providers require that diapers are available for babies left in their care. Daycare is necessary to allow the parent or guardian to work.
*The cost of a small package of diapers at a convenience store is high but this is often the only alternative available when transportation is a concern and the purchase of large cartons from Big Box stores is outside of the weekly budget.
