The Children & Youth Partnership for Dare County (CYP) recognizes that diaper need is a problem for some families in Dare County and, through CYP’s Diaper Bank, will be holding two separate diaper distribution events for the month of October. During these events, families will be able to receive free diapers to help with their diapering needs. While supplies last, diaper sizes available at both events are newborn to size six, with a limit of two packs of diapers per family.

The first of these free events will be CYP’s contactless diaper pick-up Tuesday, October 12 and Wednesday, October 13 from 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Center for CYP in Manteo. At this event, families will arrive at the Center for CYP, located at 534 Ananias Dare Street in Manteo. Families will call the CYP office at 252-441-0614 to let them know their size needs and 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.

The second October diaper distribution will be held on Wednesday, October 27 from noon-5 p.m. at Kitty Hawk Baptist Church. During this diaper drive-through event, families will arrive at Kitty Hawk Baptist Church, located at 3946 N. Croatan Highway in Kitty Hawk, and drive up to the table at the front of the building. Families will let the staff member at the table know their size needs and will remain in their vehicles. Staff will hand the diapers through the car window to families.
