In 2022, the Junior League of Annapolis celebrated our 40th anniversary by collecting 42,768 diapers (surpassing our goal of 40,000 diapers) to support our partners in Anne Arundel County. We distributed all diapers collected to the Community Pantry at Discoveries and Tyler Heights Community Resource Fair and Pop Up Pantry. This work is more important than ever, as diaper need is at an all-time high.
Did you know?*
- 1 in 3 families across the US have a diaper need
- Federal benefits like SNAP and WIC do not cover diaper expenses
- Babies without clean diapers are less likely to be accepted at daycare, so their parents are unable to go to work
- A baby needs 6-12 clean diapers per day
- 5 million children under the age of 3 live in low-income families; the need has only grown during the COVID-19 pandemic
