Who we are

The Greater Philadelphia Diaper Bank (GPDB) is a program of Mighty Writers, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to ensure that every family member is clean, dry and healthy so that they can learn and live with dignity.

The GPDB supplies free diapers, adult incontinence products and period products to partners working with families and individuals in need. Our partners are schools, homeless shelters, food pantries, family service agencies, faith-based organizations and other nonprofit organizations.

We believe in the dignity of every person and that all of us deserve to be clean and dry. We also believe that families and communities whose basic needs are met become dynamic, supportive spaces where all children can learn and grow.

DENEEN NEWLAND. the Diaper Bank’s operations manager, emigrated from Jamaica to the U.S. at 15. Here, she developed a passion for culture, social sciences and travel. She got a bachelor’s degree in English and Cultural Studies from Bryant University and a master’s of public health from the University of New England. Through her service with AmeriCorps and her time working in homeless services, Deneen developed a nuanced perspective in visualizing solutions to unmet needs. She uses her interpersonal and intercultural skills to forge positive relationships with the community and ensure program fidelity.
