The graduating class of 2023 has dedicated their end of year project to the local nonprofit Junior League of Riverside. The Junior League of Riverside is a 100% volunteer based non-profit organization of women who have created the Inland Empire’s only Diaper Bank.

The Need

As reported by the National Diaper Bank Network, 1 in 3 American families report struggling with diaper need. Recent surveying of families accessing the Diaper Bank of the IE unveiled startling barriers to basic needs: without diaper bank support, 57% of parents/guardians would keep their child in a soiled diaper for longer periods of time, 29% of infants/toddlers would go without diapers altogether, and 44% of families would have less food as a result of prioritizing clean diapers.

Stats to Know:

  • 1 in 4 doctor visits are a result of diaper dermatitis.
  • 8-10 diapers must be provided for most childcare facilities.
  • 3 in 5 parents miss work due to insufficient diaper to provide to childcare.
