Fast Facts on Diaper Needs in Our Community

submitted by

One-third of Minnesota children 3 and under don’t have consistent access to clean diapers. That’s more than 75,000 babies and toddlers in our state.

It is Diaper Awareness Week! Did you know that Augsburg University nursing faculty members offer diapers at the Augsburg Central Health Commons, Mondays and Thursdays 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.?

“We offer diapers to anyone who comes in when we are open,” stated Dr. Katie Clark, Executive Director of Augsburg Health Commons. “The need has grown so much in the last few years and we realize that we need to put a spotlight on it quickly as our resources cannot keep up with the demand,” she added.

Help us reach our goal of collecting/purchasing 5,000 diapers for the Health Commons by year end.
