Did you know that a baby needs about 8-10 diapers a day and tht can cost up to $100 per month? Bundles of Hope Diaper Bank tells us that diapers are not covered by food stamps or social welfare programs because they are considered hygiene items. In Birmingham, there ar enore than 14,500 children under the age of five and 29 percent of our community lives below the poverty line of $24,250 for a family of four. Bundles of Hope's mission is to provide an adequate and reliable supply of diapers to families experiencing financial hardship in Birmingham and the surrounding areas. POP is happy to partner with them to help families in need.
