Diapers are necessary and expensive—during your baby’s first year, you can expect to change 2,500 dirty diapers (yuk!) at a cost of at least $600 for disposables. When 44% of children under age three live in low-income families, this necessary cost can become an immense burden. Since its founding in 2010, the DC Diaper Bank has been working to ease this burden by providing a reliable source of free diapers to families in need throughout the DC metropolitan area. Working through a system of 30 distribution organizations, the DC Diaper Bank provides an average of 100,000 diapers to 3,200 families each month.
Winning Connections was proud to co-host the 4th Annual Babies and Baubles Event with the DC Diaper Bank. Attendees were treated to a trunk show featuring fabulous designers, great conversation, and sweet snacks. Several thousand dollars were ultimately raised for DC Diaper Bank!
