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! (No income verification, Minimal 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).

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.

Size Quantity Cost (per diaper)

.

The below programs have eligibility requirements such as household income, children age, proof of local residence, verification of current low-income based programs.  Currently we ONLY accept WIC card/folder as proof of qualification. (why we have nickname of WIC Diaper OC)

Please bring proof of your eligibility & ID for each visit.

Diaper Bank (WIC Qualification Required)
If you’re in dire need and require help, each qualified child can receive up to 50 diapers per month from Clear Charity’s Diaper Bank at no cost.  This program is available up to 3 times per year.**

 

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]

Please note that Quantity, Eligibility, Subsidized discount & other program details can be changed without notice at any time.

    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 !!!

      Linda says:

      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.

    • Jay
      Jay says:

      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.

      Linda says:

      Is there any other time I can meet you in person besides Sept 21????? I have a memorial for a relative that day and cannot make it

      Linda, sorry but we are unable to make exception and hold private diaperhour for you as we get many similar request and we cannot accommodate them all. Thank you.

    Hello,
    My name is Robbie, and I have a 8 year old autistic son that is still in the process of toilet training. I’m still buying a ton of diapers, and wipes. I’m a single parent, and cant work much because I care for him full time when he is not in school. I don’t know if you guys offer diapers that is for 75 lbs and up. I’m having a difficult time finding bigger diapers, and when I do find them I’m spending a average of 8 dollars for 12 diapers. If you could please help me or give me information on who can I greatttly appreciate it.

      Jay says:

      Hello Denis, so way it works from what we were told is that CalFresh gives you extra cash allowance on EBT card and we are able to process that. So please bring EBT card and if you have WIC, we can qualify you for more savings but either way, we can accept EBT card at our Orange location. Please note that our Temecula Valley location cannot accept EBT card as of yet. Thank you.

    • Denis
      Denis says:

      Since I have an ebt card do I fill out the application provided on this website to process things faster before I go to Saturday’s diaper hour event in your Orange location? Or do I go before the event to process my information with you guys?

    • Jay
      Jay says:

      Yes, printing & filling out application beforehand will save you time. If you can’t, we have them printed, ready for you to fill out on site. 🙂

      Yup, just bring any identification you have available along with WIC folder and we’d be happy to help!

      We sometimes get cloth diapers as donation but it’s not something we always have, same with organic or hypoallergenic diapers. But we do accept EBT card!

    I am curious as to what type of government assistance you accept to help with the wholesale program.
    I don’t get WIC nor any TANAF/SNAP due to our family income being $20.00 more a month than the Threshold monthly allotment before taxes.
    My oldest son has Special Needs and is still in diapers. I am trying to potty train him, but I still struggle with buying him diapers or pull ups every month.
    My son is on SSI.

      Jay says:

      Hello Shanon, I’m sorry to hear that you missed qualification by such a small amount. If you’re asking if we are funded by any government assistance, we are not. That might make sense why WIC don’t offer programs we do and WIC refers people to us when parents ask about diapers. You are welcome to get diapers from us at any time at wholesale cost which should save you $20 a month in average.

      Hello, should I print the application and bring it with me on Saturday? Does that guarantee that I can purchase diapers?

    • Jay
      Jay says:

      If you print out application, we can process you faster since you will need to fill it out first before we can help you. However there’s no guarantee on any of our programs as everything is served first come first serve basis. However, we do our best to have enough diapers to meet the demand and we rarely run out of diapers.
