Diaper Bank Distribution in Cumberland County NC
... And the community to the resources it needs!
According to the December 2016 Council of Economic Advisors Issue Brief*, studies have shown that almost one third of every low-income family struggles to afford diapers for their children. As a result, these families are forced to choose between clean diapers and other basic health necessities. Often, this results in parents trying to make a pack last as long as possible by extending the time in between changings, increasing the risk of health complications such as infections that lead to hospitalizations. 2-14 Connect wants to help relieve some of that stress from those in need in our community!
