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, and receives 10,000 visits each year.

In 2011 the Diaper Train was distributing 65,000 per year. Now we distribute that many each month totaling nearly 780,000 diapers a year.
