Happy Bottoms is giving more and more diapers to families in the Kansas City area

Happy Bottoms, the sole diaper bank in Kansas City, is responding to the growing need and financial strain experienced by families by expanding the quantity of diapers they distribute.

According to leaders at Happy Bottoms, the surge in demand for diaper assistance can be attributed to rising inflation and insufficient government support.

Each month, families will now receive 75 diapers and 50 pull-ups per child.

Families in need, as reported by the National Diaper Bank Network, miss an average of five days of work per month.

As babies grow, the cost of diapers becomes more expensive, and it can cost families up to $150 per month without any assistance.

In the previous year, Happy Bottoms experienced a significant 39% surge in demand compared to the previous year. They successfully provided over 3.4 million diapers to support the needs of more than 16,000 babies in the metro area.

In an effort to support local families, a city-wide diaper drive is currently being held this month with the aim of collecting 500,000 diapers.
