Twice As Nice Mother & Child Diaper Drive

by Kristin Stromberg, ATC

To continue with giving back to the community we are working with Twice as Nice Mother & Child. They are a nonprofit organization that helps mothers and children have their basic needs met. They provide items such as: maternity wear, diapers, wipes, formula, children’s clothes ranging from all sizes and more.

Twice as Nice Mother & Child  is a certified diaper bank and a member of the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN)

Unfortunately diapers are not covered by food stamps and they are a high priority for any parent and child. Toddlers need 7-8 diapers a day while an infant can use between 10-12. That is why we are having a diaper drive for the whole month of May!! Diaper sizes can range from newborn to 5-6, but the main demand right now is size 5-6.

We are also giving back to the organization by donating 15% of every New Patient Exam to Twice As Nice Mother & Child to help them with other expenses. They operate only with volunteers and rely on donations.
