I was a single mom who struggled with buying diapers. I often had to wash cloth ones out by hand, and than hang to dry. Laundry mats won't let you wash cloth ones there and day care centers require disposable diapers. There was no help back when mine were young and only the Diaper Bank now. There is need right here in your Midland community!

Diapers are one of the things that mothers can't get with their bridge card, they are very expensive and you can't do without them. Getting diapers from the Diaper Bank means that the people who come to our food pantry, not only get food, but diapers too!

I organized a diaper drive at my place of employment. Midland Community Diaper Bank provided me with great ideas and resources on how to get started. Our collection was a success, and I would definately work with them again.

Midland Community Diaper Bank has been providing FREE diapers to our clients for a year. They have been a blessing to our clients and babies. Pregnancy Aid has a 24 hour volunteer-staffed hotline, and we serve women and their families in need in Midland and neighboring counties. We have been able to meet every request for diapers, due to the support of the Midland Community Diaper Bank.

The Midland Community Diaper Bank has been delivering FREE diapers to Partner Agencies since September, 2010. In just 13 months, over 90,000 diapers have been delivered to the agencies and provided to the clients they serve, in financial crisis!

The Diaper Bank does not give diapers to
individuals; only to agencies that have partnered with us. Our partner agencies are: DHS, Salvation Army, Caregiving Network, Cancer Services, Head Start, all the Midland Family Centers, Emergency Food Pantry Network, Early On, Senior Services, Pregnancy Resource Center, Pregnancy Aid and Shelterhouse.

It has been a pleasure to work with our partner agencies and their staff. They work daily, with servant hearts, providing for those who are less fortunate.

It has also been very humbling to find out that diapers ARE an unmet need, and to hear stories of how families get by without an adequate supply of diapers. (Scraping waste out of diapers and taping them back on, drying out wet diapers to re-use them, and using rags and plastic wrap are only a few stories I have heard.)

I would like to thank all of our donors, either named or anonymous. Without you, the Diaper Bank would not have survived our first full year!

The Great!

Our Partner Agencies have shared stories from the families we have helped as well as how our diapers free up their funds to meet other needs.

It would be great to have consistent financial support. We can purchase diapers at wholesale prices, but we need to raise $1,250.00 in order to get the lowest price. This amount will purchase 2 pallets and GET ONE FREE. The cost per diaper is .08 cents and we get 14,400 diapers. We have NO PAID POSITIONS, and every donated dollar buys diapers or helps to cover small operating costs.
