The Junior League of Lincoln (JLL, jll.org) and Lincoln Littles have partnered to provide diapers through one of Lincoln Littles’ 28 qualified childcare providers. The recent partnership ensures families won’t have to keep children home from childcare due to a lack of diapers.
According to the National Diaper Bank Network, one in three American families with small children report experiencing diaper needs. Despite the apparent need, there are no federal or state programs that provide funding specifically for purchasing diapers. SNAP and WIC assistance cannot be used to purchase diapers.
“Junior League understands the childcare crisis currently facing Lincoln,” said Anne Brandt, Executive Director of Lincoln Littles. “Families already struggle to cover the cost of childcare and by reducing the worry over diaper need, this partnership will give families a little piece of mind.”
