PARTNER AGENCIES

Loving Bottoms Diaper Bank distributes basic essential items (diapers, period, and incontinence supplies) through a network of community, non-profit, educational, and health care partner organizations that are serving low-income women, children, and seniors with comprehensive, evidence based programming proven to strengthen and stabilize families, give children healthy and happy beginnings, and ensure our seniors can live healthy active lives.

If people struggle to provide essential items for their children or themselves, they are likely struggling with many other needs critical for health and wellbeing. Because of this, the Diaper Bank works exclusively with community distribution partners–adding diapers, period kits, and incontinence supplies to the list of services our partners can provide–rather than distributing directly to families and individuals. By working with partners, Loving Bottoms avoids creating a new distribution system–but more importantly, it strengthens our partners’ programming, allowing them to make products available to those they serve.

When people don’t have to worry about where to get diapers, period, and incontinence supplies, they are free to focus more intention and effort on meeting the goals of their engagement in our partner programs. Put simply: our products strengthen the lives of both the organizations with whom we partner and the lives of the people who receive them.

BECOME A PARTNER

The only way Loving Bottoms Diaper Bank gets our diapers, period supplies, and incontinence products out into the hands of the families who need them is through partnerships with local non-profit organizations, school districts, health departments, and pantries.

Why Partnership?

The Diaper Bank’s mission to provide diapers, period, and incontinence supplies to the individuals who need them most in West Central Illinois is best achieved when we partner with local organizations already serving these families.

When people know they will get diapers, period kits, or incontinence supplies through an organization, they are more likely to participate in programs that will benefit them in other ways and are more likely to keep appointments with service providers.  When basic needs are met, families can work on the complex tasks of emotional, social, or physical development being tackled by our partners.

Partner Agreement

The Diaper Bank seeks partners committed to collaborative work – helping us understand the scope, causes, and consequences of diaper need and period poverty in our community and helping us understand the impact that our products make in the lives of families.

We ask our partners to commit to helping us collect data, talk about basic essentials need and the Diaper Bank in the community, and join us in advocacy efforts that would make diapers, period, and incontinence supplies more accessible for the families who need them in Illinois and nationwide.
