Did you know it costs a family about $1,000 a year to buy a supply of average-priced diapers for one child? For someone who works a full-time minimum-wage job, making just over $20,000 a year, that’s a major expense.
The Flemington Area Food Pantry (FAFP) and United Way of Hunterdon County are partnering to lead the Hunterdon Diaper Bank efforts and ensure struggling families have ongoing access to diapers. In fact, the program assists an average of 100 families every month just at the FAFP, and many others throughout the county.
In addition to providing support for our youngest neighbors, the Hunterdon Diaper Bank will continue to collect and distribute incontinence products to help adults with disabilities and seniors on a shoestring budget. Not only do families with young children struggle but more than 2,000 of our senior households in Hunterdon County earn under $25,000 annually.
The need for diapers and adult incontinence products often exceeds the supply available at the Hunterdon Diaper Bank. For any club, organization or individual seeking an impactful way to support our community a diaper drive is simple yet incredibly needed way to do so.
