Capital Diaper Bank (CDB), a non-profit subsidiary of Capital Childcare, needs your help! Located on West Laburnum, not far from Maggie Walker, Capital Childcare is a "crisis nursery" that serves children in need. Many of these children are victims of abuse, hunger, and neglect. Diapers are a costly commodity not covered by most social safety net programs, and Capital Childcare discovered firsthand that they were being underused in some poverty stricken homes. CDB was founded in 2007 to ensure that Capital Childcare's children, and others like them throughout Central Virginia, have the diapers they need.
Visit CDB's website at capitaldiaperbank.org for more information about the devastating impact of insufficient diapers on families with limited resources.
If your club or organization would like to host a diaper drive for our neighbors at Capital Diaper Bank, please contact Shelley Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
