National Diaper Awareness Week launches
Gabriel House Project Fall Diaper Drive
Please help us keep babies healthy and happy this fall!
According to the National Diaper Bank, 1 in 3 households struggle with diaper need. Catholic Charities’ Bottom Line Diaper Bank seeks to be part of the solution for these families! We will be kicking off our Fall Diaper Drive on September 23rd, with the beginning of National Diaper Need Awareness Week, and continue collecting through the end of October.
Ways to help:
1. Please consider running a diaper drive through your parish, school, or other community organization- Contact Andrew Sanchez.
2. Donate diapers to help this effort! Our highest need sizes are 5 and 6, which help us with older babies (age 11-18 months). Contact Andrew Sanchez or call 720-799-9307 to arrange drop off.
3. Donate to Bottom line Diaper Bank
The Bottom Line Diaper Bank, a volunteer social care committee, established by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Denver, supports any Colorado family in need by providing access to donated diapers for infants and toddlers. The Bottom Line Diaper Bank increases awareness about the health risks associated with diaper deficits and organizes efforts to generate a reliable and adequate supply of diapers.

“Without a doubt, it’s the biggest expense (for many families),” explained Mark Hahn, volunteer and parish relations coordinator for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Denver, in a Denver Catholic story. “It’s estimated that one in three families struggle to buy diapers; and there are times when parents are forced to choose between buying diapers and buying food.”
