PDX Diaper Bank provides diapers to social service organizations and government agencies (such as schools) that are already helping families in need through comprehensive programs and services.  PDX Diaper Bank has found that distributing diapers in this way ensures they reach those who need them most. It also provides partnering organizations a resource – diapers – they are not normally able to provide, increasing the services they can offer. By working with organizations that are already well established in the community and currently working with families in need, PDX Diaper Bank ensures that the diapers collected are distributed to families in the most efficient and timely manner.

Families: If you are in need of diapers, please locate our partner agencies that accept walk-in requests for diapers. We recommend contacting the organizations in advance to assure that they are currently stocked with the size(s) needed. Please know that some of our distribution partners use the diapers they receive from PDX Diaper Bank with their existing clients only.
