RECOGNIZING THE NEED

 

The B.A.C.A. Diaper Bank is set up to assist Low Income families by donating one pack of diapers per child each month to help fill the gap when disposable diapers are needed while you're waiting to gain funds.  We have also recognized that each day so many children suffer and are treated for Diaper Rash and by having additional diapers on hand will help eliminate that problem.  B.A.C.A. believes that our disposable Diaper donation given to qualifying families will fill that gap...
