The Bradshaw Institute for Community Child Health & Advocacy of Prisma Health Children’s Hospital—Upstate has launched a diaper bank to help ensure that every child in the community has enough diapers to remain clean, dry and healthy.

RE/MAX RESULTS agents helped launch the program by donating more than 10,000 diapers collected earlier this summer. 

According to the National Diaper Bank Network, one in three families report experiencing a diaper need. Additionally, 57 percent of parents reported that they missed an average of four days of school or work as most childcare facilities require parents to provide diapers.

Starting January 2021, The Bradshaw Institute Diaper Bank will begin providing resources to the community and will be one of six National Diaper Bank Network members in South Carolina. 

To donate to the Bradshaw Institute Diaper Bank, text “CMNdiaper,” to 41444 or email giving@prismahealth.org.
