Children & Youth Partnership for Dare County sets diaper distribution events
Published 5:18 pm Tuesday, January 11, 2022
Children & Youth Partnership for Dare County (CYP) recognizes that the costs related to diapering needs are a problem for families in Dare County. Through CYP’s Diaper Bank, two separate diaper distribution events will be held in the month of January (one in Manteo and one in Kitty Hawk).
During these events, families will be able to receive free diapers to help with their diapering needs. By providing two events, families will have the opportunity to choose the option that works best for their family. 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 on Wednesday, January 12 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 January diaper distribution will be held on Wednesday, January 26 from noon-5 p.m. at Kitty Hawk Baptist Church. During this diaper drive-through, families will arrive at Kitty Hawk Baptist Church (3946 N. Croatan Highway, 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.
CYP’s Diaper Bank is possible through the support of individuals, businesses and organizations. CYP is accepting tax-deductible monetary donations and donations of unopened packs of diapers for CYP’s Diaper Bank. Visit darekids.org/blog/cyps-diaper-bank to learn more.
