Diaper Need Awareness Week, Sept. 8 -14, draws attention to the fact that one in three U.S. families lack a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry and healthy. National Diaper Bank Network and its more than 200-member diaper banks located in communities throughout the country are working to address this hidden consequence of poverty. With the support of volunteers and donations of dollars and diapers these organizations are helping babies get the diapers they need. Learn how to help at (PRNewsFoto/National Diaper Bank Network)
