Detail Description

Did you know that one out of three children in Minnesota, age 3 and under, are in need of clean diapers? That means that more than 75,000 children do not have access to clean diapers. Diaper needs impact the physical, mental, and economic well-being of children and parents, so helping families gain access to diapers is extremely important.
