We are incredibly grateful! Thank you Raley’s!

City of Lincoln Officially Proclaims Diaper Need Awareness Week

Lighthouse is excited to announce that the City of Lincoln has officially proclaimed September 8th through September 14th Diaper Need Awareness Week!

“The City Council of the City of Lincoln proclaims September 8-14, 2014 as Diaper Need Awareness Week in the City of Lincoln and encourages the citizens of Lincoln and of all California to donate generously to diaper banks, diaper drives and those organizations that distribute diapers to families in need to help alleviate diaper need in California.”

We could not be happier to have such great support from our city on this important issue.  Diaper Need is a problem that impacts 6 million babies in the United States. Diaper Need means babies are kept in wet, dirty diapers for an extended period. As a result, they are more likely to experience signs of irritation and discomfort, cry more, suffer from worse diaper rash, and are exposed to more health risks. Parents struggling with Diaper Need are more likely to miss work or school, stay home when they need to go out, or keep their babies out of daycare, which usually requires a full day’s supply of disposable diapers. Additionally, no government assistance program currently helps with the purchase of diapers, which can increase economic hardship for many families, particularly as many babies need more than 50 diaper changes a week for 3 years, costing up to $100 per month.

You can help by donating diapers to Lighthouse’s Diaper Bank during Diaper Need Awareness Week or holding your own diaper drive.
