Nappie Project in Loveland helps families with much needed diapers


According to the National Diaper Bank Network, low-income families spend up to 20% of their monthly income on diapers. On average, diapers cost a family $70-80/month per child; 1 in 3 families have reported a diaper need. Sadly, it often boils down to diapers versus food. Neither Medicaid nor food stamps cover the cost of diapers.

As the only diaper bank in Northern Colorado, the non-profit Nappie Project diaper bank, an all-volunteer organization, distributes thousands of diapers to 14 partner agencies across NOCO. In 2016, 46% of those diapers came from donations.
