AUSTIN, Texas — The Austin Diaper Bank plans to give out 200,000 free diapers to local families.

“The Austin Diaper Bank was recently blessed with large donations of diapers, and we want to give them to Austin-area families who need them most this holiday season,” Holly McDaniel executive director of the AUstin Diaper Bank said. “Our mission is to ensure that no child suffers because their family struggles to afford a sufficient supply of diapers to keep them clean and healthy.”

According to the Austin Diaper Bank, an estimated 12,000 babies and toddlers in Travis County lack a sufficient supply of diapers. 

The drive will be held Friday Dec. 8 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Dove Springs Recreation Center, 5801 Ainez Drive, Austin, 78744.
