About: The Diaper Bank of NC aims to promote and protect the dignity of each resident by ensuring that families with babies and children living with poverty have an adequate supply of diapers. Their efforts improve access to personal hygiene products and other basic necessities through diaper distribution through community partners to empower people to become self-sustaining and develop their full potential and enhances community understanding that access to basic personal hygiene is integral to physical and mental health, education, employability, and quality of life. The Diaper Bank raises awareness that these needs are not being met for families living with poverty – advocating for policy reform so that diapers and period products are included in the definition of and provision for the basic human needs of families in North Carolina.
2019-20 DGIN Funding will support the supply of sanitary products through their Dignity for Girls: Addressing Period Poverty in the Durham Public Schools program.
