Our Mission
To collect and distribute diapers to community organizations and individuals in need while raising awareness of this problem



We're proud to be a member of 
the National Diaper Bank Network.




Working Space Needed!

We believe the need for diapers along the Wasatch Front to be about 50,000 diapers a month. We attempted to ship 30,000 diapers last month and just could not.  We had to cut back to 26,000 diapers.  It looks like working out of a private garage we are limited to 20,000 diapers a month. We’ve been unsuccessful in soliciting companies to donate working space, so we plan to start soliciting companies and individuals for donations between $1,000 – and $5,000 each to rent space.  We’ll need about 1,000 to 2,000 square feet to grow.  If you or your company can help please contact us!

 

 


  

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.

Huggies New Purchase Program

 

At the annual National Diaper Bank Network conference last week Huggies announced the implementation of a special purchase program for diaper banks.  This program allows us to purchase diapers at a greatly reduced price.  It means your donated dollars can purchase 3-6 times more diapers than you could.

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
