Diaper Drive

by YMCA YMCA Marketing | Aug 23, 2018

This September, the Y has partnered with the Junior League of Baton Rouge Diaper Bank to encourage community members to donate any unused, disposable diapers to area children in need. 

Diapers can be donated at any of the nine YMCA of the Capital Area locations during the week of September 24-30.

Along with cigarettes and alcohol, governmental assistance programs do not allow the purchase of diapers, yet one in three families cannot afford them. Children who stay in dirty diapers have an increased chance of diaper rash, viral illnesses and urinary tract infections. All donations will make a much needed impact for children right here in the Baton Rouge community.
