Local families need diapers

May 26, 2020 – (Paramus, NJ) Children’s Aid and Family Services, a Paramus-based non-profit human services agency, has an urgent need for diapers, wipes and formula for low-income families served by its Baby Basics program.

“On top of already struggling to provide the necessities like food, rent and utilities, many of our families are comprised of hourly workers who may be in jeopardy of losing their jobs or being furloughed,” says Sara Huisking, Vice President, Development. “Without the program’s support, many families are forced to resort to rationing diapers or changing their babies less frequently, which may lead to rashes, infections and a host of other problems.”

As the effects of the pandemic continue to put financial strain on area families, the need for diapers and other baby essentials is even greater at Children’s Aid and Family Services.
Additionally, due to the pandemic, diaper drives led by volunteer groups – which continually replenish the agency’s stock of diapers and wipes — are on hold indefinitely.

Please call 201-740-7104 to make a donation to help area families in need.
