Diaper Bank Celebrates One Millionth Diaper Distributed

Diaper Bank Celebrates One Millionth Diaper Distributed

PR Newswire

IRVINE, Calif., July 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, July 16, 2020, Community Action Partnership of Orange County (CAP OC) will be celebrating their one millionth diaper distributed with a hybrid virtual & in-person event. At an upcoming diaper distribution, a lucky recipient will be presented with the one millionth diaper, as well as some additional baby related goodies. The distribution will be held at Families Forward (8 Thomas, Irvine, CA 92618), a diaper bank partner, with the one millionth diaper moment happening between 10 am11am.

In 2018, only four Food Banks in California successfully received State funding to establish Diaper Banks in their communities. CAP OC partnered with Assemblymember Tom Daly and Senator Tom Umberg to submit a budget request on behalf of CAP OC's food bank. In July 2019, the request was officially signed into the California state budget, creating California's 5th Diaper Bank.

The millionth diaper distributed comes much sooner than expected. The Diaper Bank was set to begin diaper distributions May 2020. However, due to the pandemic, beginning in March, CAP OC saw the need to help struggling families who had been recently laid off and decided to prematurely launch the Diaper Bank program.

"We are proud that we have been able to provide this additional service to help bring diapers to our community in fulfilling our mission to eradicate poverty. Diapers are an essential commodity for any family, and this opportunity to provide this resource for the health and welfare of children and decrease the financial burden for families is essential," says Gregory C. Scott, President & CEO of Community Action Partnership of Orange County.
