CLE Diaper Drive
WHAT: Cleveland is hosting a city-wide, East vs West diaper drive to support our neighbors in need.
WHY: One in three families in the U.S. struggles with diaper need, and things are even worse here in Cleveland, where half of children live in poverty. It’s no wonder families are struggling to afford diapers when the cost of diapering one child can cost abo ut $1,000 per year. This need is compounded by the fact that no government subsidies currently cover or assist with the cost of diapers.
WHEN: September 23rd-30th
