Diapers are a basic need for babies, yet 1 in 5 Canadian families struggle to afford enough. WaterWerks has been working since 2009 to change that. Over the past nine years, we have collected over 500,000 diapers to help Newfoundland and Labrador families.
This year marks our 13th annual Christmas Diaper Drop. The event will begin December 1st and the Community Food Sharing Network will again be the recipient of the donations to distribute province wide.
13 years ago, WaterWerks employees learned the grim reality of diaper need. We were shocked to learn that parents often have to cut back on essentials, like food, utilities, medicine and child care, in order to afford enough diapers. When you combine this with the fact that over 15% of our province’s youth live in poverty and the ever-increasing cost of living, it paints a bleak picture. So we decided to do something about it and work to end diaper need in our community.
“It’s not the first thing that crosses your mind when you think about what to donate during the Christmas season, or any time of year,” said partner Roxanne Morrissey. “But it’s such a basic need. And it’s hard to believe that such a basic need is not being met. We urge others to join us every year and donate diapers to children in need.”
Individuals, organizations and entire offices have been involved in the past, being activists and donating diapers or money to this fantastic cause. Over the past several years, the employees at WaterWerks are humbled by the willingness of community members and businesses that have contributed to the drive.
