Diaper donation drive goes digital
OKLAHOMA — Infant Crisis Services host an annual diaper drive for National Diaper Needs Awareness Week. This year, the drive will take place online.
The diaper drive is hosted from Sept. 28 – Oct. 4, and there will be an online wish list and baby registry.
“What a lot of people don’t realize is that programs like SNAP and WIC don’t cover things like diapers or baby wipes,” said Miki Farris, executive director of Infant Crisis Services. “We rely heavily on the generosity of our community to make sure we can feed and diaper our youngest and most vulnerable clients.”
Studies have shown that leaving a baby in a soiled diaper could lead to UTIs, other infections, and a negative affect on the baby’s emotional well-being.
Donations will also be accepted at their office in northeast Oklahoma City.
