The DC Diaper Bank received a new shipment in Silver Spring on Friday: 281,354 diapers, to be exact.

Corinne Cannon, the bank’s founder and executive director, said the diapers came from the National Diaper Bank Network and from Huggies, which makes large-scale donations that are filtered out to regional organizations.

Each month, the DC Diaper Bank provides an average of 65,000 diapers — which cannot be purchased through the food-stamp program — to more than 2,000 low-income and at-risk families in Washington, D.C, Maryland and Virginia.

The bank works with 18 community partners.

In a news release, Cannon said: “Diapers truly are a gateway resource that allow social workers and staff to ensure babies have the diapers they need to avoid infection and to begin a conversation with families who would not otherwise come in their doors for food and other services.”

The DC Diaper Bank’s warehouse is on Monard Drive in Silver Spring.
