How This Project Helps: Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Diaper Bank has seen a 2000% increase in the need for adult incontinence products, an 800% increase in the need for period products, and a 400% increase in the need for diapers. At the same time, the Diaper Bank has been operating with a volunteer shortage. We rely heavily on volunteer support to repackage diapers, period products, and adult incontinence items so that we can quickly get them to those in need

Deadline to Submit Final Project: We are asking that you complete your project by Nov. 30, 2021

Notes: DBNC will provide you with helpful contacts, resources, and complete project instructions upon sign up.
