AUSTIN, Texas — The Austin Diaper Bank distributed approximately 15,000 diapers directly to the public on Friday, March 27, at its North Austin warehouse.
Despite typically distributing diapers through nonprofit partners, the bank decided to distribute through its own warehouse for this event.
The Austin Diaper Bank is asking for the community's help to meet the growing demand for diapers, wipes and period products.
"Diapers are a basic, essential need," said Austin Diaper Bank Executive Director Holly McDaniel. "Our mission is to provide diapers to families who need our help, including in times of crisis or when they're experiencing hard times. With the community's generosity, we'll continue to provide diapers and, most importantly, hope."
Financial donations can be made to the diaper bank through its website, which helps the organization buy diapers at a reduced cost.
