Many San Antonio citizens work in the travel and hospitality sectors, often one paycheck away from financial ruin. TXDB is seeing significant increases of families unable to afford diapers, wipes, period products, and incontinence supplies. Requests for basic healthcare supplies will skyrocket as ripple effects of shutdowns and layoffs are felt. To meet the expected upsurge in demand, TXDB needs to replenish stock immediately, meaning buying directly from manufacturers.
In addition to clients, we are receiving much larger requests for diapers, wipes, feminine hygiene products, and incontinence supplies from our partner agencies. While we are prepared to assist, we expect our existing supplies to be depleted quickly.
Families affected by business layoffs and closures will be struggling financially for months. Texas Diaper Bank is prepared to help families and individuals needing diapers, wipes, incontinence supplies, and period products as they struggle to recover from this health crisis.
With the possibility of an increase of 10-20% in long-term unemployment, the organization believes the number of clients will exponentially increase. Texas Diaper Bank is prepared to serve clients for months after this health crisis abates.
