WHAT IS DIAPER NEED?
The inability to provide a sufficient supply of diapers to keep one's baby clean, dry, and healthy. Diaper need is everywhere, especially in Southern West Virginia. On average, children use 6 - 8 diapers per day (although it is double for newborns). Southern Snuggles is the ONLY exclusive diaper bank serving Mercer and McDowell counties. We fight each day to give children a fair start to life and helping families provide for their basic needs. By doing so, we are helping our children to become stronger adults and citizens in the future.
EVERYDAY 1 IN 3 FAMILIES IN AMERICA STRUGGLE TO AFFORD DIAPERS FOR THEIR CHILDREN.
Southern Snuggles partners with local agencies and families to provide free diapers for those who need it the most. There is no financial requirement to receive diapers, although we do limit families to one donation per month, unless there are extenuating circumstances.
Together we work to raise awareness of the basic health need for diapers. Our vision is to eliminate the existence of diaper need throughout the southern West Virginia region so that every baby has an equal opportunity to live a healthy, happy life.
Help our babies!
Fund Our Mission
Fortunately, we have partnerships with many third party suppliers that allow us to use our dollars to purchase 2-3x as many diapers as you can at the local grocery store. Because of this, we encourage monetary donations. This also allows us to purchase the SIZES we need the most!
It truly does take a village! We are ALWAYS looking for volunteers to host diaper drives, collect donations, or even wrap diapers. Please reach out if you would like to help our diaper bank in ANY way!
Your generous donations to Southern Snuggles is the reason we help families in our area. We cannot do this alone! We accept donations year-round, even open packages. You may mail, drop-off, or purchase diapers through our Amazon wish list.
