Modestly Cover Diaper Bank of Essex County

Date grant awarded: 05/01/2017

Founded in 2016 by Janien V. Reeves, Modestly Cover Diaper Bank of Essex County ensures that families living below the poverty level and low income in Essex County, NJ have an adequate supply of diapers for infants and toddlers.

Our understanding is that the gap between the number of diapers a baby needs and the number of diapers the family can afford is called “Diaper Need”. We address the diaper disparity and work to bridge the gap in communities through collaboration, education, advocacy and volunteerism while upholding the principle that all infants and toddlers deserve an opportunity to grow into healthy adults.
