KJFS Diaper Bank
KJFS is the first National Diaper Bank Network participant in Maine. Working with more than a dozen partner agencies, the KJFS Diaper Bank distributed over 300,000 diapers throughout Southern Maine in the past year. As a member of the National Diaper Bank Network, we access diapers for 40% of the retail cost.
Unfortunately, diaper need is a significant issue in Southern Maine, with many families facing the heartbreaking challenge of deciding between buying diapers, food, or paying rent each month. We offer diapers to families who visit our food pantry, and we also distribute diapers to 14 partnering local pantries. KJFS now also distributes menstrual hygiene products and adult incontinence products.
