The Kewaunee County Public Health Department has started a diaper bank to help offset the rising demand for assistance with baby supplies from moms in need. Federal and state assistance programs such as Badger Care do not allow for diaper purchases even though the expense rivals that for food for a newborn. Director Cindy Kinnard says that community response has been incredibly supportive.
Donations, both supplies and monetary gifts, are accepted during normal business hours. Those who wish to receive diapers can do so once a month for each child in the household up to four years of age. The diaper bank is open to Kewaunee County residents only so proof of address is required.
