Catholic Charities Diaper Bank
Catholic Charities Diaper Bank provides diaper distributions to families in need with children aged 3 and under.
HOW WE HELP
The Diaper Bank helps low-income families keep their young children clean, dry, and healthy by providing 6 diaper distributions each year. Diaper Bank members receive 30 to 60 diapers, depending on supply, and one package of wipes at each distribution.
Catholic Charities Diaper Bank is an affiliate of the National Diaper Bank Network.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
The Diaper Bank operates with generous donations from the community.
- Make a diaper donation. All diaper sizes are needed. Often overlooked are larger sized diapers, sized 4, 5, and 6. These are always in short supply. Also needed are wipes and other baby hygiene items. Donations can be brought to the Bayard House. Please call ahead if you are making a large donation.
- Organize a diaper drive. Ask your family, neighbors, church, or civic group to donate diapers and hygiene items. Click here to get a Diaper Drive toolkit. Donations can be brought to the Bayard House. Please call ahead if you are making a large donation.
