Families in need can get diapers for their babies

Through the generosity of a private donor, TEAM, Inc. has launched the Valley Diaper Bank, providing baby diapers and wipes for families in need.

Federal assistance programs do not cover the cost for diapers. According to a press release from TEAM, an infant uses up to 12 diapers per day and a toddler uses up to eight per day.

However, in low-income households, a baby may be in a single diaper all day or longer.

The Diaper Bank is being piloted for families in Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton with children under the age of 4. To register for the Valley Diaper Bank or for additional information, contact Ayanna Williams at 203-736-5420 ext. 208.
