Director of the Diaper Bank of Skagit County, Calista Scott, noted that there were families that could not afford diapers for their children, and diaper banks across the country helped families obtain the diapers they needed. Ms. Scott reported that last year, diaper banks in the National Diaper Bank Network secured similar proclamations from the governors or state legislatures in 31 states as well as from mayors and county officials in 181 cities and counties representing 38 states throughout the country.
Ms. Scott said that the Diaper Bank of Skagit County was a member of the National Diaper Bank Network, which had been actively raising awareness addressing diaper need across the county.
Commissioner Janicki read the Proclamation recognizing September 24 through September 30, 2018, as “Diaper Need Awareness Week” in Skagit County and encouraged the citizens of Skagit County to donate generously to Diaper Bank of Skagit County that distributes diapers to families in need to help alleviate diaper need in communities throughout Skagit County.
