KJFS Diaper Bank
This year, KJFS became the first National Diaper Bank Network participant in Maine; through the purchasing power of the network, we are now able to access diapers and wipes for significantly less than retail price. With the support of many donors and a generous grant from the Fruhman Family Foundation, this year we will distribute nearly 300,000 diapers.
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.
