Each registered household receives one supply of disposable diapers per child. We cannot provide diapers to multiple parents, caregivers, or grandparents for the same child.
Children in diaper sizes 5 and smaller will receive 50 diapers per child. Children in diaper size 6 or pull-ups will receive 30 diapers per child. We cannot provide diapers for expecting families.
You must bring identification for each child (ex. birth certificate, live birth record from the hospital, military ID, insurance card, passport, Medicaid card, social security card, or other documentation).
Households who register and no-show twice will no longer qualify to receive diapers.
When you register online, you are required to answer a few qualifying questions. Why do we ask so many questions? Because we want to ensure we have enough diapers for your children and gather the information we need to expand this program to help more families.
The Diaper Bank of NC and Partnership for Children of Cumberland County, Inc. will keep your information private. We will not share your names, address, phone number, email address, or personal information. Data reported to grant funders will not include any names and will only report information about the group (ex. % of military families, etc.).
Truckload of Hope is the first-ever Mobile Diaper Bank in the country. This mobile unit allows the Diaper Bank of NC to expand its reach and travel to areas identified with the most need. The truck first rolled into Fayetteville on June 3, 2017, with its inaugural shipment of diapers. Since then we have held events each subsequent month giving away nearly 13,000 diapers.
Growing awareness of diaper need among active-duty service members provided the catalyst for launching Truckload of Hope. A survey of NC military families conducted on behalf of Diaper Bank of NC found that 63% of respondents felt having enough diapers was a significant concern and 74% felt that diapers were a significant expense.
“We receive hundreds of requests for diapers from military families and from support organizations working with military families,” said Michelle Old, DBNC Executive Director.
Because there is a need in the Fayetteville area, The Diaper Bank of NC works with the Partnership for Children to identify and register families who qualify. Both military and civilian families are eligible to receive diapers.
