Diaper Bank

The Junior League of Tampa Diaper Bank volunteers packing diapers.

We believe all babies should have access to clean diapers.

The Junior League of Tampa Diaper Bank serves to combat diaper need within Hillsborough County by supplying diapers to programs in our community. Diaper Need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry, and healthy.

Run by our volunteer members, the Diaper Bank collects, purchases, and packs diapers for our community partners across Hillsborough County. Our partners place monthly orders and receive diapers at no cost, to distribute to their clients.

If you are an individual in need of diapers, please contact Champions for Children at 813.673.4646.

  • Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps.
  • Disposable diapers cost $70 to $80 per month per baby.
