August Diaper Drive

No child should ever wear the same diaper all day.

However, the unfortunate reality is that even here in Sarasota County, one in three families in struggles with providing the bare necessities for their babies.

With the cost of diapers at more than $100 each month per child, many parents must make the difficult choice between diapers and food. Infants who don’t have a clean diaper are likely to suffer from painful urinary tract infections and other serious complications.

The Healthy Start Coalition of Sarasota County is partnering with our local Walgreens to collect diapers to help families in need.

You can donate unopened packages of diapers and wipes at several convenient locations. Cash donations to purchase diapers will also be accepted at the Healthy Start Coalition office.
