We're excited to share that Jake's Diapers was recently featured on USA Today. The news outlet interviewed our Executive Director Stephanie Bowers, capturing the depth of all the work we do.
The feature also discussed our nonprofit’s significant growth during 2020 as a result of increased needs due to COVID-19. As an example, we provided more diapers in March, April and May than we did in all of 2019.
“Diapers are such a basic need but so missed,” Stephanie explains. “If you’re living paycheck to paycheck and you go to the store because desperately need diapers and you go to the store and now the shelves are empty - what do you do?”
As of the end of July 2020, our total diaper distribution this year to babies in need is 443,994. We're excited to highlight our evolution and the impact our diapers have made since the beginning.
"Alone we can do so little. Together, we can do so much." - Helen Keller
When COVID-19 hit locally in March, we accelerated our mission to help vulnerable populations struggling with financial decisions between food and other basic needs.
There are so many families struggling right now to buy essential products - like diapers, period products and adult care essentials - for their families. We knew these people would need extra help and care to circumvent the pandemic that would disproportionally affect people living in poverty.
We are so grateful for new supporters of our cause as we come together to help our community get through this time. Because of your support, we're able to ....
Distribute 313,665 essential hygiene products to people in need between March + April.
Help 7,054 people because of those distributions.
This impact doesn't even count May, yet!
Thank you for joining our cause as a monthly supporter, and realizing the difference that can have in others lives. It really means the world - we're happy to have you as part of our Circle of Change.
