Diaper Bank

Main Content

Access to a sufficient supply of diapers is essential for the health of infants and toddlers, but too many families do not have the resources to adequately provide for this basic need.

Diapers and baby wipes collected will be distributed to families through nonprofits located in Milwaukee, Waukesha, southern Ozaukee and Washington Counties for regional impact.Your support helps families gain financial flexibility to focus income on housing and other essential items.

Run a Diaper Collection Drive

Hosting a supply drive is easy and fun, plus we help make it easy.

Get started

Download the Diaper Drive Toolkit that includes a flyer, progress sheet, and signage.
