Why donate to Operation Baby New Year?

They are expensive! Today 1 in 3 families struggle to provide diapers for their children.

Low-income families often cannot afford the high cost of diapers because diapers cannot be purchased with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program funds (Food Stamps).

Lack of access to diapers and supplies can cause children to get sick, and force families to skip work in order to care for their infant or toddler.

Unable to afford diapers, they are forced to choose between a range of undesirable alternatives such as cutting back on basics such as food, utilities or child care in order to purchase diapers for their children.

That is why we started Operation Baby New Year, to make sure no parent or guardian has to make those difficult choices in times of need. Last year between our winter and summer diaper drive, our community partners helped raise over 170,000 diapers for families across central Minnesota, an estimated 35,000$ of diaper assistance (, 2016).

With your support, we can continue to provide diapers the many local organizations in our area offering programs and shelter to those living in crisis.

The drive runs until January 1st. To find a drop off site near you, please click here:
