Our Vision: No diaper need in Utah is unfulfilled.

   


A little background. 

   

The Utah Diaper Bank was founded in 2012 by a few concerned individuals who saw a community need for an organized approach to collecting and distributing diapers.  The first awareness of this need surfaced in 2010 when a call went out from local television and radio stations to fill an urgent need of local Salt Lake City shelters for diapers. 

Over the next two years donations to the shelters continued on a personal basis, but in May of 2012 the local television stations once again broadcast an urgent need for diapers.  It was from this second call for aid that the resolve was formed to “Do something about this ongoing problem  Initial research found that there was already a loosely organized group of diaper banks in thirty-two states. But Utah was not one of those states.  It was with this resolve and information that the decision was reached that Utah should, like the other thirty-two states, have its own organized diaper bank.

 

 

 

New partners in Southern Utah
In August we added distribution partners in Cedar City, St. George, and Richfield.  Here's a picture of Vic's fifth wheel loaded with diapers for the first deliveries.  We plan to continue our distribution to them on quarterly basis
How Diaper Banks Started

The Diaper Bank movement began in 1994 when a small consulting firm decided to give back to their local community during the holiday season. Resolve Inc., located in Tucson, Arizona began their philanthropic endeavor by collecting diapers for a local crisis nursery. Their annual diaper collection tradition continued, and only five years later they were able to collect 300,000 diapers for 30 different agencies
