Diaper Collection to help MetroWest families


DIAPER NEED AWARENESS WEEK is September 24 to September 30.

Do you know:

  • Many MetroWest families struggle to buy diapers–up to 3,000 families in Natick and Framingham alone.
  • A family needs up to $80 a month for diapers per child—an average of 50 diaper changes per week over 3 years.
  • Government programs don’t cover the cost of diapers.
  • Many parents are forced to re-use diapers or leave their child in a soiled diaper longer than appropriate.  This can adversely affect the health and welfare of infants, toddlers and their families.
  • Many families have to decide between food, medicine, and clean babies.
  • Without diapers, babies cannot attend daycare or early childhood programs.

Let’s help provide MetroWest families in financial distress with diapers for their infants and toddlers to keep them clean, dry and healthy.

Before Sunday September 30, please bring a package of diapers to church– sizes 5 and 6 are in high need.

There is a collection bin in the First Parish of Sudbury Parish Hall.

Opened packages your child has outgrown are fine.  We will donate collected diapers to The Diaper Project at A Place To Turn located at 99 Hartford St. in Natick.  In 2017, they distributed 80,902 diapers to 1152 families.  For further information, contact Eve Benda, Coordinator, Diaper Project at A Place To Turn, 508-872-7125.
