For many parents here in metro Denver, a car, access to a warehouse club, and cash are “luxuries” they simply don’t have, so they buy diapers at convenience stores within walking distance of their apartments. The packages may have as few as six in a box—which makes the per-diaper price the highest you’ll find.
Babies needs 6 to 10 diapers per day, costing upwards of $100 a month. If you live at or below the poverty level, you might have to choose between paying bills, buying food…or buying diapers (which you can’t buy with WIC or food stamps). Without enough diapers for routine changes, you start reusing dirty diapers, creating rashes and health problems—your baby cries more, stress levels go up and parenting just got tougher.
Rocky Mountain Diaper Depot helps get diapers and supplies for these moms, and change lives.
List of Needed Items:
• Children’s diapers (all sizes)
