Apply for Diapers

 

The Westchester County Diaper Bank is now accepting applications and donations for diapers.

The Westchester County Diaper Bank provides diapers once a month to Westchester County residents. The JLCW operates the diaper bank, but does not distribute diapers directly to clients. Diapers are distributed at four Westchester County Department of Social Services (DSS) District Offices as well as other locations. Residents DO NOT need to be a client of the DSS.

 

Deadlines and distribution dates are below. We are unable to check the status of applications at this time.

 

The Westchester County Diaper Bank will close for the summer. June 1, 2019 is the application deadline for June 20 distribution. Applications will again be accepted on September 1 for October distribution.

 

Packages of 50 diapers or 25 pull-ups are provided. This service is dependent on the availability of diapers. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that diapers of the requested size will be available.

 

**Please note: The Westchester County Diaper Bank is closed for the Summer. June 2019 was the last distribution prior to closure. Applications will again be accepted starting on September 1st for October delivery.**

 

Thank you for using the Westchester County Diaper Bank.
