How To Get Help
The Walworth County Diaper Bank depends entirely on volunteers and donations from the community. There are no government funds received for this program. Through the generosity of others, we are able to supply 1 week's worth of diapers every 30 days for each child properly registered.

Member of The National Diaper Bank Network
The Walworth County Diaper Bank provides approximately 1 week's worth of disposable diapers on a 30 day cycle to qualified families to help bridge the gap. Diapers are sourced from local organizations holding diaper drives throughout the year. Diapers are also purchased at a discount through the National Diaper Bank Network sponsors, Huggies, Medline and Cuties.
A $10.00 donation can help keep a child in clean diapers for a week.
Diaper Bank gets New Conveyor!
Thanks to the generosity of The National Diaper Bank and the Funds To Change grant, along side WE Energies Foundation funding, the diaper bank was able to install an electric conveyor to move the big bulky boxes of diapers and supplies to our beautiful 3,000 sq ft basement. Of course, a Diaper Cake was part of the inaugural celebration!
Funds for Change Grant
We are so grateful to be a part of The National Diaper Bank Network and to have been awarded this grant to help make the new conveyor possible! Here's the whole story (click here).
