Who We Are
Until now, families in Tulsa have lacked a permanent diaper solution to free them of the financial burden posed by diapers.
Permanent Diaper Relief, Inc. (PDR) is a charitable organization with empowerment and sustainability at the top of its core values. Children need the right resources from day one in order to be successful in growth and development, and parents deserve one less financial burden to stress over. We are pleased to be a vital resource for families, children, and our community through reusable and sustainable products for women and families.
Permanent Diaper Relief, Inc. was founded in 2020 after the COVID-19 pandemic encouraged founder Madelaine Martin to begin donating diapers to families in crisis. She began donating 10 cloth diapers to each child in need, which is the equivalent to one day’s worth of diaper changes plus one small load of laundry per night.
Within three weeks, Martin had donated 400 diapers to babies in need. The diaper donations were made possible by generous contributions, both in kind and monetary, from the community. Martin realized she could help even more families in crisis by incorporating a nonprofit in the area. Now, it is the organization’s mission to provide permanent diaper relief to families in both situational and financial hardships.
What We Do
Diaper Assistance. PDR’s first step in providing a permanent diaper solution is to assist families with 40 cloth diapers, per baby, regardless of income.
Cleaning Service. Once a family receives diapers, they are offered an opportunity to use PDR’s income-based cloth diaper cleaning service.
Upcycled Diapers. Every household can support Permanent Diaper Relief by donating their unwanted t-shirts, towels, and sheets. At Permanent Diaper Relief, we turn second-hand items into diaper absorbency.
