Every day, families in our community struggle to provide baby care items to keep them happy and healthy.
Diaper need affects one in three families, creating a very real need in our community.
Disposable diapers are actually more expensive at corner stores and pharmacies in low income areas, costing a family over $80 each month to outfit their baby in clean disposable diapers. Stretching the time between changing can create serious health risks for children and their families and severely damaging the quality of life for many infants.
No Child Wet Behind sets out to change these statistics, improving the life of babies, infants and toddlers one fresh diaper at a time.
We're teaming up with sponsors to benefit The Nest, a local center for women, children and families in need.
In the 1970s, Lexington combined the Lexington Child Abuse Council and the Women’s Center of Central Kentucky to create The Nest. This organization provides resources and education that families in crisis need to live healthier and independent lifestyles. They offer women in the Lexington area childcare, crisis management, domestic violence counseling and advocacy, parent education and support. Our No Child Wet Behind fundraiser and 5K event hopes to raise money and diapers for this amazing organization in our community.
