Help Diaper Bank of Minnesota recognize Diaper Need Awareness Week,  Sept 18 – 24!

Did you know?

  • The National Diaper Bank Network Diaper Check 2023 survey found that 1 in 2 U.S. families with young children experience diaper need – a dramatic increase from the 1 in 3 figure from last year.
  • 35% of caregivers reported cutting back on food and 28% reported skipping meals to afford diapers for their children.
  • Diapers aren’t covered under any government aid or financial assistance programs, leaving families with few options.
  • Daycares often can’t accept babies without a day’s supply of diapers, meaning diaper need can prevent parents from going to work.


Again this year, there are several ways to help families through donation or getting involved:

  • Donate diapers (we accept open packages!) to our Diaper Drive via our new location at 2327 Wycliff St in St Paul, #310 during one of the following drop-off times:
    • Fri 9/22: 3 pm – 6 pm
    • Sat 9/23: 9 am – 12 pm
    • Mon 9/25: 4pm – 6 pm
  • Donate digitally to our Diaper Drive via our Target Wish List
  • Donate $$ to help us reach our goal of $2,500 during Awareness Week at  (As a non-profit we’re able to purchase diapers at about 30% less than retail, meaning we get more diapers for each dollar spent)
  • Volunteer to count and sort diapers for distribution
  • (If you need diapers, find our list of distribution partners here )
