Disposable diapers cost about $80 per month per child, and are required by day care providers. Without diapers, parents cannot go to work or school. But no government program allows spending for diapers.
Middlesex County’s only diaper bank, the B-FED Program (Baby Formula, Equipment and Diapers) is highlighting this need during National Diaper Need Awareness Week, Sept. 25- Oct. 1. With no charge to families, last year they gave out more than 70,000 diapers to more than 1,100 babies.
Diapers of all sizes are needed and can be delivered to 222 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick. All cash donations will be used to purchase diapers and wipes in bulk. All donations are fully tax deductible.
