Close The #DiaperGap by Clear Charity
[Learn more about #DiaperGap & #DiaperNeed]

The “OC Diaper Bank” program by Clear Charity was started to close the #DiaperGap for those in need within Orange County, CA.  While we are not a part of the National Diaper Bank yet but we provide a similar program to help make sure families in our local area have the diapers they need for their baby(s).

Too many American families are at a disadvantage when it comes to diapers, an essential item for babies, because they don’t have access to discount membership stores or cannot afford to stock up when they’re on sale.  Our “Close The #DiaperGap” program will launch in phases to ensure stable supply and funding of the program.

This program started on 5/20/16
Here are the details on how you can participate in our ‘Close The #DiaperGap’ programs

“Close the #DiaperGap”

This program is for EVERYONE! (No income verification, No paperwork)  We understand that families who often struggle do not qualify for low-income assistance programs.  You can come in during our open hours to get these premium diapers at our WHOLESALE COST.  For purchase at wholesale cost, you do not need to bring any paperwork or ID (unless purchasing with a credit card).

    From my understanding, I thought you can order and have delivered to my home. Maybe it didn’t work out. If so, this would be super helpful. Please let me know how to order online, if this route is still available. Thank you kindly.

      Hello Mary, please see above for where and when which gets updated every week or see calendar for repeating schedule. We also have information about what to bring above which is ID & proof of any government assistance program. If you don’t quality for low income assistance, you can still come in without any documentation and still get diapers at wholesale cost!

    Hello, we are low income but live in the county of L.A. I see that you mention on the other comments that we can still purchase the whole sale prices which is great. Would we still be able to apply for the low income program as well? (free diapers)

      Hello Valerie, if you are visiting OC, you can come by during our #DiaperHour and we would help you. We will not turn you down just because you don’t reside in OC. However, I do believe there are a few diaper banks within LA area as well. You might want to look into them first. 🙂

      Hello Shaina, For wholesale cost purchase, we do not require any residential or income requirements. You can just come in during our diaper hours and get these premium diapers at wholesale! 😀

      Hello Juliana, for expecting mothers, we are making this program available for you as early as 3 weeks ahead of your due date. For diaper bank or subsidized diapers, we’d need some proof of low-income qualification such as WIC or food stamp related Card. We’ll also need to see your ID to verify that you’re local. For the date & place, please check our event page and look for ‘Diaper hours’ at http://clearcharity.org/events Thank you!
