One in three American families experience diaper need1, which is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to help keep a baby or toddler clean, dry and healthy. Diaper need is a public health issue that can result from poverty, unexpected life hardships, natural disasters and so much more.
Now through March 26, 2022, Meijer has teamed up with the Huggies brand to help make a difference for families experiencing diaper need. Throughout the month, when customers purchase a pack of Huggies® diapers at their local Meijer store or online, one day’s worth of diapers will be donated by the Huggies brand to the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN), up to 400,000 diapers2 in total. NDBN is a national nonprofit dedicated to providing basic necessities required to build the strong foundations all children, families and individuals need to thrive and reach their full potential.
“At Huggies, we believe we play an important role in helping parents navigate the uncertainty and unknowns of parenthood, which includes raising awareness to address critical issues in America such as diaper need,” said Robert Raines, Vice President of Huggies North America. “That’s why we have been a long-time partner of the National Diaper Bank Network and now with the support of Meijer, we are able to help even more of families across America and more babies thrive.”
Huggies is proud to be the founding sponsor of the National Diaper Bank Network, which has 225+ member diaper banks across the country. Since 2011, Huggies has donated more than 300 million diapers and wipes to the National Diaper Bank Network to help families across the country in need.
