ST. LOUIS – Time to see what your neighbors are doing in #WhatYouAreDoingAboutIt.

You can help keep parents on the job and kids in daycare during National Diaper Need Awareness Week.
A 2016 study by the University of Connecticut found most families who rely on diaper banks are employed. Without diapers, most young children are not admitted into daycare centers. This keeps parents at home, and out of work.

The St. Louis Area Diaper Bank encourages you to donate from Saturday, September 24 through Sunday, October 2. The agency will have a special event to pack the bank.
