Southwest Community Diaper Bank

Southwest Side Educators and Community Activists from Brighton Park, Back of The Yards, Mckinley Park, and Gage Park are launching this Diaper Bank because we know that our surrounding communities are currently struggling. We know that times are difficult for our families due to loss of jobs, unemployment, and cutback of working hours. We understand that the hardest hit are our families who may not qualify for government help due to their immigrant status.

Our neighborhood communities are beautiful vibrant spaces where hard working families Live, play, and work. These families contribute to the wonderful vibrancy of city of Chicago. And during these hardships many are facing within our neighborhoods, it is necessary that we come together to help in any way we can. That is why we are asking you to join us in donating a few dollars so that we can bring a little relief to our communities. We would like to help as many of our families living in Brighton Park, McKinley Park, Back of the Yards, and Gage Park as possible.

We hope you will donate what you can. Let’s show up for our communities to let them know they are not alone! As we collect donations, we will be purchasing these items. If you wish to make a diaper donation instead contact Anna Lane

If you live in Brighton Park, Gage Park Park, McKinley Park, or BOTY, and you would like to volunteer to help distribute diapers,  please contact Anna Lane at
