Share the Love, our cloth diaper bank, works to solve diaper need.

Diaper Need Diaper need is a huge, silent epidemic in the United States. According to a study*, as many as 1 in 3 families struggle to buy enough diapers. These families are forced to choose between buying diapers and essentials like food, utilities and childcare. No government assistance exists for diapers.

Editor’s Note: This content was kindly (and voluntarily) shared with us by a Share the Love recipient.

My husband had been unemployed for four months, having worked part-time before then, and just received a 4-month trucking job. Needless to say, we have truly been struggling financially since fall 2013, but by scaling
