Diaper Bank

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.

If you are a 501(c)3 organization and would like additional information regarding The Junior League of Tampa’s Diaper Bank, please complete this Diaper Bank Request for Information

Diaper Need Facts

Diaper Need is serious issue affecting families in Hillsborough County. According to the National Diaper Bank Network:

  • 15.5 million children in the U.S. aged three or younger live in poor or low-income families.
  • 1 in 2 American families report experiencing diaper need.
  • 3 in 5 parents miss work or school because they cannot afford diapers.
  • Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps.
  • An average monthly supply of diapers costs approximately $80 per child. 
  • No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers.
  • Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large “big box” store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers.
  • Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8.
