Up to 13,000 diapers were stolen from the Diaper Bank of North Carolina this weekend, leaving a lot of babies and families unhappy.
“We aren’t able to fill our orders, and we have seen babies go through the day with one diaper a day,” Michelle Old, DBNC’s executive director said. “Parents are forced to rinse out diapers and reuse them and we’re seeing an increase in diaper rashes.”
Luckily, Huggies heard about the plight and decided to lend a hand. “It’s heartbreaking to hear of the theft of diapers at @DiaperBankNC. We’ll replace all & donate double – 26,000 diapers. #HugsDelivered,” they tweeted on their page.
And just today, Pampers also decided to do their part. “In all the activity this AM, we forgot to thank @Pampers, too. They let us know yesterday that a donation is coming our way. Thank you!”, DBNC also tweeted.
DBNC works with impoverished families in the North Carolina area, making sure that parents can have a supply of diapers ready for their babies.
