Diapers are gold at Catholic Charities. They are an expensive necessity for young mothers who are most often working jobs that pay minimum wage and are doing everything possible to stretch their monthly income. For many of the young mothers who come to us, the cost of diapers is a very real problem when food, utilities, and rent must be paid each month. Laundromats, too, are a real expense. Fresh diapers for babies when needed should not ever be a luxury.
