Wake County's First Diaper Bank
Serving families since 2011

The Diaper Train provides diapers to low-income families in Wake County, improving the lives of babies and toddlers. The program is run by volunteers and serves over 900 children each month. Volunteers work with churches, businesses, schools and civic groups to collect diapers, baby wipes and children's books. The community is served in two ways:

1. Diapers are distributed to crisis centers, transitional programs and emergency food pantries to assist the families they serve.  For more information, visit our Partner Agencies page.

2. Families with a referral may come to Saint Saviour's Center on Tuesday or Thursday morning between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. to receive diapers, wipes (when available) and children's books. 

Families must live in Wake County and have a referral from an approved Referring Agency.  Return visits are by appointment only.

 How can you help?

We currently need:

  • Diapers in sizes 2 and 4
  • Baby wipes
  • Gently used children's books (ages 0-8)
