PLAINFIELD, NJ — Much like toilet paper and hand sanitizer, diapers and other basic baby essentials are hard to find during the ongoing coronavirus crisis. Moms Helping Moms Foundation (MHM), a baby supply and diaper bank located in Plainfield, is doing its best to keep up with its regular distribution as well as meet emergency need requests from its existing network of partners including schools, food banks, faith-based organizations and social service agencies.
“One in three families struggle with diaper need during normal times. With the current crisis that need is going to rise and we hope to be able to provide as much assistance as we can, but we can’t do it alone,” states Bridget Cutler, MHM Founder and Executive Director.
MHM relies heavily on individual in-kind donations and community sponsored diaper drives. These programs have ceased due to current COVID-19 related health restrictions and MHM will need to increase its purchasing of diapers.
“As long as we have diapers and stay healthy, we will continue with distributions. A monetary donation of any amount toward our diaper campaign will go far in supporting vulnerable babies and families throughout NJ right now.”
