According to the National Diaper Bank Network, one in three American families suffer diaper needs.
The Erie Family Center Diaper Depot is looking to change that.
The inaugural Diaper Depot began today with 5,000 diapers being handed out to about 150 Erie County families.
The program sees the need for clean diapers in the Erie area and does not have any income or location requirements.
Through donations, the Erie Family Center is looking to continue this depot on the last Monday of each month.
“There is such a need in Erie for a little bit of help with diapers. All the programs that exist either have a location requirement or a financial income requirement. We really wanted to be able to have a program that was open to everyone in the community,” said Christina Bell, Diaper Depot coordinator.
