Children & Youth Partnership plans free diaper pick-up

Children & Youth Partnership for Dare County (CYP) recognizes that the need for diapers is a problem for many families in Dare County and has set out to collaborate with the community to address it by launching CYP’s Diaper Bank – A Change for the Better.

CYP has held two diaper drive-through distribution events in the past month – one on Roanoke Island and one on Hatteras Island – with the help of the Outer Banks Community Foundation and several other individuals, businesses and organizations.

CYP has announced its upcoming contactless diaper pick-up, set for Monday, July 13 through Thursday, July 16 from 9:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. at the Center for CYP in Manteo. During this event, Dare County families will be able to receive free diapers and baby wipes to help with their diapering needs. While supplies last, diaper sizes available are newborn to size six, with a limit of two packs of diapers per family.

To receive free diapers through CYP’s contactless pick-up, families will arrive at the Center for CYP, located at 534 Ananias Dare Street in Manteo. Families should call the CYP office at 252-441-0614 to let them know their size needs and then will remain in their vehicles. A CYP staff member will bring the needed diapers to a table outside and return to the office. Families can then get out of their vehicles to get their diapers from the table. Contact CYP at 252-441-0614, visit darekids.org or follow CYP on Facebook at facebook.com/cypdarekids for more information about this and other upcoming distributions.

For those interested in helping, CYP is accepting tax-deductible monetary donations and donations of unopened diapers and wipes for CYP’s Diaper Bank. Visit darekids.org/blog/cyps-diaper-bank to learn more.
