Think about it: If you were evacuating your home, you'd obviously bring some diapers for your baby. But wading through chest deep water to get to a shelter or somewhere safe means that you can't bring a lot of them with you — and they may even get ruined in the process. In addition to families not being able to bring their entire stash, shelters often don't provide diapers and neither do disaster relief agencies. Once a parent runs out, even in a shelter, there might not be any diapers to keep their infants dry and comfortable — and quiet — during this incredibly difficult and trying time.
The Texas Diaper Bank works to meet the basic needs of vulnerable babies, children with disabilities & seniors. It focuses on providing partner agencies with diapers and personal hygiene goods. Think diapers, pads and all the things we take for granted having easy access to.
Please help us send as much love, hugs & diapers from the Duke Birthing Center as we can! Every penny counts.
