The mission of Babies Need Bottoms diaper bank is to improve the lives of babies, toddlers, and parents in the Greater Asheville area through diaper distribution, community awareness and partnerships.
Our goals are to:
- Collect and distribute diapers through community partnerships
- Collect financial donations to purchase diapers and diaper supplies at discounted rates
- Bring awareness to the Greater Asheville community about the local diaper need
- Advocate for changes in local and state policies to improve diaper access
Diapers & diaper supplies are not covered by government assistance:
Diapers cost an average of $70-$80 per month, per child
Infants use up to 12 diapers/day and toddlers up to 8 diapers/day
1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need
Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large "big box" store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers.
