Annual Diaper Need Awareness WeekSeptember 28 to October 4

Diaper Need Awareness Week is an initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) created to mobilize efforts to help make a difference in the lives of the nearly 5.3 million babies in the U.S. aged three or younger who live in poor or low-income families.

The Nevada County Diaper Project distributes over 4,000 diapers per month through various agencies located through the county, and is in continuous need of funds to keep the shelves stocked and ready for distribution.

Unopened packages of diapers can be dropped off at Interfaith Food Ministry or Pampered Earth Children’s Store, both in Grass Valley. Checks made payable to Nevada County Diaper Project can be mailed to P. O. Box 912, Penn Valley, CA 95946. And, most importantly, you can donate your Holiday Market WOW points to the Nevada County Diaper Project.

Acting together — individuals, diaper banks, faith-based institutions, service providers, businesses, organizations and elected officials — we can get diapers to all babies in need.
