In September 2014 our founder, Lee Ann Porter, hosted a diaper drive as part of diaper need awareness week. She had read an article about families who struggled to provide enough diapers for their babies. This was the first she had ever heard of organizations, diaper banks, that were being formed around the country to address the need. Having experienced what it is like to not have enough diapers, she was determined to help bring a diaper bank to her local community. And one year later, in September of 2015, Loving Bottoms Diaper Bank was officially formed.
The diaper bank is a 501(c)(3) and has partnered with agencies to distribute diapers in Knox, Fulton, Warren, Mercer, and Henderson Counties, Illinois. Over 5,200 diapers are distributed monthly helping over 100 babies, and those numbers continue to increase each month.
Provide an adequate and reliable supply of diapers to families experiencing financial hardship while engaging the community and raising awareness for diaper need.
We envision a community where every diaper need is met.
