Need Help with Diapers?  Diaper Help has arrived!  #DiaperAid of Southern California is project by Clear Charity helping to Close The Diaper Gap serving clients all over the SoCal, making sure all babies have diapers they need!  We are known as WIC Diaper OC program and we offer different affordable Diaper programs.  The “Diaper Aid of Southern California” (previously OC #DiaperBank & #DiaperGap) program by Clear Charity was started in 5/20/16 to close the #DiaperGap for those in need in our general area. (We have clients from Oceanside, Burbank, San Bernardino & beyond!)  While we are not an official 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 #DiaperAid (Close The #DiaperGap) program will launch in phases to ensure stable supply and funding of the program.

Close the #DiaperGAP
This program is for EVERYONE!

Diapers we carry. Wondering what kind of diapers we offer as a part of our #DiaperGap program?  While we often offer different brands of donated diapers, our main diapers are private labeled quality diapers provided in partnership with JetCares for #DiaperGap programs.  You can order these diapers online over here.

Subsidized Diaper Gap (WIC Qualification Required)
For each qualified child, you can purchase diapers at a subsidized (30% ~ 50%) off of wholesale price above!   There are limits on how much you can purchase which will be based on actual need of a child.**  [WIC Diaper OC Programs offer 50~70% discount compare to typical retail price]

Linda, I’m sorry that you made a trip after we were closed. We made announcement on 9/18 that OC diaperhour on 21st was changing to 130 – 330 and all event page & calendar has been updated. While we do our best to keep the posted schedule, sometimes there are last minute changes and we recommend checking our FB event page or our calendar on the day of to make sure times or other details haven’t changed. We’re open on 8th next. (see above calendar) Thank you.

Hello, I am new to this program. I just moved back to the area with my 1 year old. I currently have WIC for him. I just want to be clear on how the process works for the diaper hour Sept 21, 2019. We go. Fill in an application with the wic folder and we can buy there for the price listed? On the fb page it says buy tickets which is why I am confused. Thank you for any help.

Hi there, I went to diaper hour in July and filled out application with my wic folder. I’m wondering if there is a way to buy diapers and wipes online from y’all because I can’t make it to the next diaper hour. I am in need of wipes badly. I’m asking since when I did go, you ended up just shipping the boxes to my house. Please let me know ASAP thank you !!!

Basically, what I am asking is… can I please place an order for wipes and diapers through you at the discounted WIC rate if you look me up and can verify it’s me….? Please email me so we can discuss what we can do. I’m literally on my last package of wipes and really need to buy some more that are affordable through this program. Please and thank you again.

Sorry Linda, we cannot process subsidized diapers online due to high demand we cannot sustain. the only way to get subsidized diapers are in person. However, our website wholesale pricing should be lower than any other retailers if you’d like to consider ordering.
