Many families in the Greater Houston area struggle to survive every day, especially those with small children. Even affording essentials such as diapers can be difficult. The need is even more acute this year, as families struggle with the economic blow from the COVID-19 pandemic.

But you can help!

Catholic Charities has partnered with KSHJ AM 1430, the Guadalupe Radio Network’s Houston station to host the Houston Catholic Radio Month of Mary Drive for Diapers for Catholic Charities throughout the month of May! Donate or drop off diapers (all sizes needed!) and baby supplies to support parents with small children throughout the Archdiocese.

May marks the Month of Mary. Will you honor her by helping other mothers desperately in need of diapers and baby supplies? Your gift will help ensure that parents in need will receive sufficient supplies to keep their infant or child clean, dry, and healthy.

Why is Catholic Charities doing a Diaper Drive?
Raising children is expensive, and it's especially hard for low-income families with small children. Diapers can sometimes cost as much as $80 per month. Nearly a quarter of children under age 3 in Texas come from families living below the Federal Poverty Line*. While many federal and public assistance programs can be used for diapers, after paying for rent, utilities, groceries, clothing, transportation and other basic necessities, little if any money is left for purchasing diapers. Catholic Charities and the Catholic Radio for Houston KSHJ AM 1430 partnered to bridge this gap, and with your help, we can ensure no family has to choose between paying for food or buying diapers.   Source: National Diaper Network
Who receives the diapers?
Diapers are distributed through Catholic Charities' Blessed Beginnings Life Center for any family with small children in need. If you need assistance, please contact us at 713.874.6760 or send us a message.
