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 1,000 individual children each month. We receive approximately 10,000 visits per year.
The Diaper Train began in November 2010 as the first diaper bank in Wake County. During our initial year we distributed 65,000 diapers to crisis centers. Now we provide diapers to partner agencies and to individual families, and our average distribution is 500,000 diapers per year. Referrals are required.
