Emergency Diaper Need Hubs

How We’re Supporting Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Greater DC Diaper Bank has partnered with 25 other basic need provider organizations around the DC metro region to ensure all families have what they need during this tough time. We’ve created Diaper Need Hubs, a place where families can get food and diapers at one location. We’re currently partnering with the following organizations. 

Below you will find some additional information on the partnering organizations and what you need to know before arriving at each location. We do not provide diapers directly to families. Please do not show up at an organization without having reviewed their policies.
