National Diaper Bank Network 2020 Annual Report


Real Talk

At NDBN, we believe in leading by engaging in real talk about real issues. The pandemic presented an opportunity to reshape the public discussion about diaper need and period poverty in the United States.

At the onset of the crisis, NDBN increased communications via a daily COVID-19 Update for our member programs and developed core talking points to unify our movement.

Collectively, we connected our members with elected officials, journalists, and supporters, among others to share our stories.

News organizations, including USA Today, The New York Times, NPR, and countless others, turned to NDBN as the authoritative voice on what was evident in every community in the country — the unprecedented and ongoing need for help.


“The National Diaper Bank Network, which is a haven for those who cannot afford baby essentials, is seeing its supplies dwindle and demand skyrocket with more Americans out of work and seeking assistance.”
