One in three families experiences diaper need nationally. In Buffalo, 40% of families live in poverty.
Since 2016, Every Bottom Covered, Inc. has worked tirelessly, educating the Western New York community on the effects that diaper need have on everyone, not just the family personally experiencing the lack of clean diapering supplies. Families can miss up to four days of work, children often cannot attend childcare without clean diapers, and emergency rooms and clinics are overwhelmed with preventable conditions, such as diaper rash, urinary tract infections and yeast infections.
Any donation helps us to provide supplies to our partner organizations, continuing to meet the need and raise awareness on the benefits of closing the diaper gap.
