Support Colorado families in need of diapers, wipes, and formula
Partners and advocates across Colorado are essential to helping the Raise Colorado Coalition and the Children’s Campaign understand the challenges facing our state’s diverse communities. Our partners – both urban and rural–have identified diapers, wipes, and formula as crucial needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even under normal circumstances, nearly half of families with infants and toddlers in the United States live below 200 percent of the federal poverty level and struggle to afford basic necessities such as diapers. Diaper need is a public health concern that impacts infant health, parental stress, and families’ abilities to fully participate in society; this struggle has only been exacerbated by the coronavirus crisis.
One organization working diligently to meet families’ needs for diapers, wipes, and formula is Strolling Thunder Colorado partner WeeCycle. WeeCycle’s mission is to recycle essential baby gear and match it to Colorado families in need. During this challenging time, WeeCycle is working hard to support families throughout Colorado impacted by closures and shortages related to COVID-19. Please consider making a donation to WeeCycle or ordering items from their Amazon Wishlist to help ensure that families with young children have access to the essentials they need to support their health and wellbeing.
