No Wet Child Behind Diaper Drive Aims to Help Families in Need

DENVER – June 27, 2017 – WorkLife Partnership is partnering with A Precious Child for the No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive from now until the end of August. Diapers are a critical piece of the puzzle for working families.

One in three American families struggles to afford diapers, according to the National Diaper Bank Network. Providing diapers can be a huge stressor on many people as they are a major expense adding up to $70 to $80 per month per child. The need for diapers can impact the physical, mental, and economic well-being of the children and their parents. Without resources to get new diapers, babies can be exposed to potential health risks.

A Precious Child provides children in need with opportunities and resources to empower them to achieve their full potential. The nonprofit focuses on Denver-metro area children and families. The nonprofit distributes diapers, wipes, clothing, sports equipment and much more to Denver-metro area children and families in need.
