Diapers for Baby Jesus
November 28 – December 24
Every baby needs clean diapers. In Texas, an average monthly supply of diapers costs approximately $80. Most childcare centers, even free and subsidized facilities require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers. Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8. Keeping infants and toddlers clean, dry, and healthy is key to building a solid foundation for children to reach their full potential. No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers.
So, in honor of the birth of Jesus, the baby born to save us all, we will be collecting diapers, specifically sizes 3/4/5, to benefit The Samaritan Inn. This comprehensive homeless program provides housing as well as teaching self-sufficiency and life skills to meet the needs of individuals and families. On a given night, approximately 160 people sleep at the inn, of which 1 out of 3 are children.
