Diaper bank fills a unique need

HOLLAND, Mich. (WOTV) There is a unique partnership in Holland that helps to supply an essential need for so many families: diapers. Nestlings Diaper Bank is a Connecting with Community Awards finalist. The volunteer organization works to fill in the gap left by other organizations to help underserved families who struggle to diaper their children.

Nestlings services nearly 20 agencies including Center for Women in Transition, Community Action House, Breakfast with Babies, and Holland Rescue Mission. They collect and distribute diapers to families in need through these organizations.

The Holland Rescue Mission goes through hundreds of diapers a day. Because of Nestlings Diaper Bank, the mission can use its funds to provide more services for its families.

Nestlings collects diapers through diaper drives and monetary donations with which they can leverage to buy diapers at non-retail prices. They also recently received a large donation from Meijer, Huggies, and the National Diaper Bank. You can find out more about Nestlings Diaper Bank by visiting their website.
