The Diaper Bank of the Ozarks is a nonprofit agency providing diapers and also education about pregnancy and parenting for families in need. Founded in 2012, the Diaper Bank partners with agencies distributing an average of 75,000 each month through Greene Co. and 59 counties across the Ozarks. The Diaper Bank also provides education about the care and use of cloth diapers and provides cloth diaper loans saving a family over $2,000 during the time their baby is in diapers. The Diapers for Daycare program allows us to stand beside families who struggle to be able to afford the daily supply of diapers required to keep a child at the daycare. Without this assistance families could lose their employment and income.
The Diaper Bank of the Ozarks continues to be very volunteer driven. Volunteer opportunities can be one time only for many of our events and fundraisers and ongoing for individual and group opportunities repackaging diapers and filling diaper orders in our warehouse.
