With 1 in 3 families unable to afford diapers for their children - something most of us take for granted, when you give a family struggling to afford diapers for their child a one-month supply, you're giving them and their family the gift of health and relieving stress of having to choose between diapers for their child and buying food or paying utility bills.
With the cost of diapers prohibitively expensive for many of our pediatric patients, Norwalk Community Health Center is honored to be a Norwalk community partner of the Diaper Connection, a collaboration with Nuvance, Connecticut Hospital Association, and the Diaper Bank of Connecticut. Together we're working to ensure that newborns and toddlers have an adequate supply of clean diapers each month.
As a diaper bank volunteer, working with our patient engagement coordinators, you'll staff a diaper bank table in the health center, assisting families. Although not required, being bi-lingual English and Spanish or Haitian Creole will be helpful.
