Diaper Bank Update

The Westchester County Diaper Bankcontinues to provide free diapers as temporary assistance for families in need throughout Westchester County

Perhaps you saw it on the news:

The Diaper Bank hosted a Diaper Distribution event in partnership with the Sharing Shelf on Friday,June 26: 30,000 diapers were distributed to four Community-based organizations:

  • Child Care Council of Westchester
  • My Sisters’ Place
  • The Sharing Shelf
  • WestCOP

Working together, these JLCW diaper donations  and their community partners will be able to continue to service the needs of some of the most vulnerable Westchester County residents, supplying families economically impacted by COVID-19 with a critical health care supply for their families!

Throughout this pandemic, the JLCW has been distributing large quantities of diapers to more than ten community-based organizations in Westchester County to meet the extreme needs of our community, including My Sisters’ Place NY, The Child Care Council of Westchester, WestCOP, The Fuller Center, Bethesda Baptist Church, Feeding Westchester, Andrus Health, Fuerza Latina, Open Door, and The Sharing Shelf.

Diapers and wipes are not covered by any form of assistance.

Our success relates to the support we have received from the JLCW members who have packed and sorted diapers, run drives, and spread the word about diaper need.  We could not do our work without the community’s help.

Run a drive,  drop off diapers at Wayside Cottage, or simply make a monetary donation online.

Currently, we are in greater need of larger sized diapers (5, or 6), but any and all gifts are welcome!

THANK YOU to all of you who have already helped our cause
