Spotlight: The Austin Diaper Bank

The Austin Diaper Bank is making big impacts as a member of the National Diaper Bank Network. Since 2013, the organization has been working through local agencies to provide a “clean and reliable source of diapers” for families in the Central Texas Region.

Each year, the diaper bank supports over 10,000 families in Central Texas with a goal to distribute an astounding 600,000 diapers in 2019.

We asked Holly about her work at the organization and what motivates her in her daily operations. She told us that, “One in three babies goes without clean and dry diapers in our community” and that “A lack of diapers can lead to diaper rash, infections and even child abuse.”

The organization is on a mission to make one in three babies “none in three babies” who suffer from a lack a clean diapers. McDaniel added that, “We are passionate about our work in supporting families with diapers. Our goal is to make sure every parent has the supplies they need for their children so they can live empowered lives.”
