Give Ozarks Day, 2016


Please Donate to help us provide the basic necessities for Babies in our community.

Families in the Ozarks need your help to keep their babies happy and healthy. Here are the basics on why diapers are needed:

  • 1 in 3 families struggle to provide enough diapers each day to keep their babies clean and dry.
  • Families are making the choice between groceries and diapers. 
  • Diapers become a luxury rather than a necessity.
  • Babies need an average of 6-10 changes a day to stay clean, dry, and healthy.  
  • The average annual cost of diapers is $1,000 (over $80 monthly).
  • No federal programs currently provide assistance for the purchase of diapers.
  • This increasing concern is known as "Diaper Need."
  • Programs such as WIC and Food Stamps do not assist with ther purchase of 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.


A Diaper Bank is the store house supplying diapers to Partner Agencies. Partner Agencies distribute the 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 and Diaper Showers, and for individuals and businesses to provide monetary and in-kind donations to sustain the supply in the store house.
