"There is nothing abstract about poverty. It's an in-your-face reality that never, ever lets up. It touches people a thousand different ways every day. That gives us a thousand opportunities to help, to ameliorate the effects of poverty on families. Am I saying that we don't need larger reforms to reverse the trend of growing income inequality in this country? Of course not. What I'm saying is that right this minute there are many ways that we can make a big difference in people's lives with fairly simple, straight forward assistance: a diaper, a bookmobile, or free cleaning products. These are excellent opportunities for targeted community-based action."


That quote is from Joanne Goldblum, Executive Director of the National Diaper Bank Network. Its also describes our work at the Rocky Mountain Diaper Depot - make a difference with something simple.


If your feel strongly about the diaper needs in our community, join us and start recruiting others. Diapers are where we've decided to concentrate our work, and we are always on the lookout for smart, caring people who'd like to come along for the ride.
