About Us

Our Vision

We believe that all of us: babies, children and adults deserve to be clean and dry.

Started in October 2010 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the GPDB partners with other nonprofits and agencies that work with families and individuals in need. Through community diaper drives, and donations, we collect or purchase diapers and distribute them to homeless shelters, food pantries, family service agencies and faith based organizations. The Greater Philadelphia Diaper Bank believes all of us: babies, children and adults deserve to be clean and dry.
