Diaper need in the U.S. affects one in three families, especially here in Central Oregon.
Many families will have to choose between either purchasing diapers or food.
At this time, there are no government or state assistance programs that help struggling families purchase diapers and there are few resources for this type of aid in Bend.
The Rebecca Foundation is partnering with Pure Light Chiropractic, who has donated their office space for the distribution of diapers to those in need. Families may complete an online application at clothforall.org or stop in during working hours to complete a simple application. Diapers will be distributed that same day. Diaper Drives will take place throughout Bend to collect disposable and cloth donations.
Local businesses and individuals wishing to help collect diapers should contact Amanda La Bell at Amanda@clothforall.org or call 541-540-9442.
