The South Portland Public Library is hosting a Diaper Drive between Monday, November 22 and Monday, December 20. Those wishing to donate may drop off diapers at either the Main Library or the Branch Library location, during business hours and we will deliver them to a Maine Diaper Bank.
1 in 3 U.S. families experiences diaper need. Babies without clean diapers are exposed to more potential health risks & are less likely to be accepted to daycares, leaving parents unable to attend work. The National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) provides basic necessities required to build the strong foundations all children, families, and individuals need to thrive and reach their full potential.
Maine’s diaper bank networks provide nearly 300,000 diapers annually to families in Maine, including the South Portland community. Currently, there is a particular need for larger diaper sizes (5 & 6 preferred) as well as wipes.
