The Diaper Bank of Skagit County’s mission to end diaper need in our community. We are currently supplying over 10,000 diapers a month to families in need through our partners WIC Mount Vernon, WIC Anacortes, WIC Swinomish and the didgwálič wellness center.
The Lack of a sufficient supply of diapers is called Diaper Need. Diaper Need is a consequence of poverty. Thirty-six percent of U.S. households are in Diaper Need.
Diaper Need touches families regardless of age, income or economic hardship. Diaper Need affects a parent’s ability to work or attend school. Those in Diaper Need also struggle for other basic necessities. Unlike other basic needs, diapers are not included in a single government or state program.
