Children are the most vulnerable population when disaster strikes. With the recent natural disasters of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and Hurricane Irma in Florida & Puerto Rico, along with Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, there are thousands of children in dire need.
“When disaster strikes, families may find themselves with only the clothes on their backs” says Stephanie Bowers, co-founder of Jake’s Diapers. “They are in a desperate situation, just trying to survive.”
Federal disaster relief programs do not provide diapers, and children are in dire need. Jake’s Diapers is proud to partner with The Rebecca Foundation to provide the basic need of diapers to children in need.
The Rebecca Foundation’s Cloth Diaper Closet, a nonprofit diaper bank, has active chapters in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. Their mission is to bring clean, reusable cloth diapers to economically disadvantaged families in the United States; directly working with recipients.
Jake’s Diapers, also a diaper bank, provides diapers to those in need through partner agencies who are the “boots on the ground”. With both of their skill sets combined, Jake’s and Rebecca’s are excited to help children impacted by the Hurricanes together. Jake’s Diapers will collect, prepare, and then provide the diapers for distribution by The Rebecca Foundation. The supply of diapers will lift up and assist families as they work to recover and rebuild from the hurricanes.
CaringCrowd®, a crowdfunding platform proudly sponsored by Johnson & Johnson, will double all donations, up to $250, to support these efforts in hurricane relief and rebuilding.
“Every donation matters, and small change adds up to great impact.” says Bowers.
