TUCSON - The Pima County Health Department is sponsoring a diaper drive during the month of July in response to a critical need for diapers throughout the community.
The county is aiming to collect 15,000 diapers for infants and toddlers. The drive will conclude on Aug. 1 with the department's World Breastfeeding Awareness Fair.
Supply at the Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona is low in the summer and they are particularly in need of diapers in larger sizes such as fours and fives. Diapers can be a significant expense for families, given that six to 10 diapers are needed on an average day. The Diaper Bank was able to meet only 40 percent of the 1.5 million requests it received last year.
Donations of disposable diapers in unopened packages may be taken to the Abrams Public Health Center, 3950 S. Country Club Road, throughout the month. The lobby is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
