The Central Jersey Diaper Bank typically hosts a spring diaper drive to collect donations but thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, those drives never happened. Now more than ever, the CJDB needs donations.
The CJDB’s mission is to help low-income families, and those in crisis, by providing free diapers, wipes, baby clothes and gear to keep babies clean, healthy and safe, plus support families in their journey toward self-sufficiency.
On Friday, June 5 and Sunday, June 7 from 10 am-2 pm, a no-contact diaper drive-thru in New Brunswick will be open for donations. To drop off, head to Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple Parking Lot at 222 Livingston Ave. in New Brunswick. You can remain in your car while donations are taken out. If you don’t want to make a donation in-person, you can ship items or donate online.
The CJDB is asking for baby diapers in all sizes, wipes, formula and face masks. According to CJDB, there are around 14,000 babies in Middlesex County in need of diapers, wipes and more. You can also help the distribution of diapers by becoming a patron for $1-30 month. Other ways to help include buying items from the CJDB’s Amazon wish list, hosting your own diaper drive and volunteering.
