Why diapers, you ask?
Children and those with a disability are vulnerable to physical and emotional distress when financial resources prevent the purchase of enough diapers. Imagine a baby who only receives two or three diaper changes each day, instead of a healthy ten to twelve changes.
Diapers are a basic necessity, not a luxury. Our Morris Diaper Bank engages everyone in the community to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens receive a healthy daily change of diapers. The Morris Diaper Bank also reflects community collaboration at its best – children, families, churches, schools and businesses collecting diapers twice a year; dozens of non-profit organizations distributing diapers to the most vulnerable children and families they currently serve. Our non-profit distribution partners include Birthright of Dover, Children on the Green, Homeless Solutions, Family Promise of Morris County, Little People’s Academy, NORWESCAP Early Head Start Program, Street Smart Outreach Program, The Salvation Army Dover Corps and John Corr Family Resources. As we are assured of adequate resources to support diaper need we will expand our community partnerships.
Help position the Morris Diaper Bank to better meet diaper need for our children and older adults. Our goal is to collect and distribute more than 100,000 annually. Morris Diaper Bank has linkages with key community partners and coordinates diaper need awareness campaigns, collection, transportation, storage, and distribution of diapers to needy individuals through our network.
Host a diaper drive at your workplace, congregation, organization or collect diapers* at an upcoming party or family event. Volunteer to sort and pack diapers for participating community partners. Diapers may also be dropped off at 111 Howard Boulevard., Suit. 104, Mt. Arlington, NJ – Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Child & Family Resources can only accept unopened packages of diapers. To donate opened packages or loose diapers, please contact North Porch Women & Infants Center at 973-537-0392.
