HENDERSON, Nev. (KLAS) — The City of Henderson is teaming up with Baby’s Bounty to provide diapers and wipes on Jan. 27, as part of the nonprofit’s diaper bank program. The drive will last from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Valley View Rec Center.
Families can pick up enough diapers and wipes to last about a month.
“Our clients that we previously assisted with our baby bundling program were calling and saying, ‘listen, I’m on my last diaper, and I don’t have any other resources for the next diaper change,'” shared Kelly Maxwell, director of Baby’s Bounty.
The Las Vegas-based nonprofit supports and empowers at-risk families by providing education and the essential tools to ensure a good start for every baby.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the organization said the need to provide diapers has grown even greater as families struggle with unemployment.
“So far in 2020, we distributed and helped 7,500 families and distributed over 300,000 diapers and over a million wipes,” said Maxwell.
The nonprofit operates diaper banks in Las Vegas and Henderson.
