The Cobb Diaper Day Committee is sponsoring a diaper drive with the goal of collecting more than 100,000 diapers for low-income families. The diaper day event was founded by a concerned group of community leaders with the goal of raising awareness that, in tough economic times, securing the most basic needs—having diapers to care for infants and children– is a challenge that low-income families face on a regular basis.

“Raising a family today is difficult enough without the added burden of wondering where the necessities of life will come from,” said the late Cobb Diaper Day founder Barbara Hickey. “Often times it is the little things in our lives that make the biggest difference. Together, we can help hundreds of families in Cobb County by this single act.”  Barbara envisioned the community coming together to support local families in need and reminded us all that it is often the little things in our lives that make the biggest difference.

Typical problems that low income families face:

  • Food Stamps do not include hygiene products such as diapers.
  • Diapers are expensive – on average, the cost to purchase diapers is around $100/month.
  • Daycare centers require parents to provide their own diapers.

All sizes are needed and every donation helps. Whether it is one package of diapers from your family, or a truck load from your place of employment, it will make the difference in the life of a child. Cobb Diaper Day is asking the business community, concerned citizens and non-profit organizations to collect diapers from employees, members and friends throughout the months of September and October.

Organizations, companies and individuals are encouraged to participate in various
