LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Many know how difficult it is to raise a child. The odd hours, the safety concerns and of course the frequent diaper changing.

Now, imagine what it must be like for parents who can’t afford diapers.

That’s why the Capital Area Diaper Bank exists. They collect diapers and other baby supplies for those who cannot afford them. It’s a nonprofit that partners with agencies and church diaper banks in Eaton, Clinton, Ingham, and Shiawassee counties.

“Capital Area Diaper Bank will supply a sufficient and reliable supply of baby diapers and incontinent supplies at no charge to the Homeless and low income families with children in diapers,” organizers wrote on their website.

They also provide incontinence supplies to seniors and those with disabilities who need them and cannot afford them. But the biggest need is for children’s diapers.

Organizers wrote, “We believe the access to a dependable source of diapers and incontinence supplies will help to improve the health and wellbeing of the children, by helping sustain the families and individuals in a time of crisis.”

Now, News 10 is helping out.
