Permanent Diaper Relief and Gifts from Liam have partnered to provide emergency cloth diaper support to Chicago families, with additional programs coming soon.
Our Chicago branch provides 10 reusable diapers and a wet bag to Chicago applicants. This kit allows for a full day of clean diaper changes plus one small load of laundry.
Since 2017 Gifts from Liam (GFL) has provided disposable diaper assistance to families in need throughout Chicagoland. GFL collaborates with local community agencies to provide diaper assistance and alleviate diaper need.
From 2017 to 2020, over 80,000 diapers have been donated, as well as wipes, diaper creams, and other hygiene supplies to approximately 3,000 families.
Most importantly, every family that has been helped through the assistance program has also received educational information about best practices to keep babies safe during pregnancy and through the first year of life.
GFL has always recognized the negative impact disposable diapers have on the environment, however, for many families, using disposable diapers is the only option.
Providing cloth diaper assistance to families who can benefit from them has always been a program goal. The GFL team is excited to offer this option and further work toward eliminating diaper need, while still providing life saving information.
PDR Chicago accepts cloth diaper donations, both new and loved, at a few of the following locations:
Farmer’s Insurance: Jacqueline Cervera
A Blessing Hand: Tonti Elementary
Mt. Zion: UFL Center
