Diaper Drive to help local families

July 3, 2024

This summer we are running a diaper drive to support Beantown Baby Diaper Bank in Lexington, Massachusetts!

Beantown Baby Diaper Bank serves seven partner agencies based in Waltham, Burlington, and Lexington (including Family ACCESS Community Connections of Newton supporting Weston families through a Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Grant), collectively serving over 350 families per year.

Diapers are not covered by any form of government assistance, and 1 in 2 U.S. families struggle with diaper need, defined as lack of access to an adequate supply of clean diapers.

How can we help?

  • Purchase a box or bag of disposable diapers
    • No quantity is too big or small – every diaper matters!
    • You may also purchase diapers via Beantown Baby Diaper Bank’s Amazon
    • Larger disposable diapers – Sizes 4, 5, 6 and 7 – are of greatest need, though diapers of ALL sizes are accepted.
    • New wipes are also appreciated.
  • Donate disposable diapers that your children have outgrown.
    • Open packages or loose unused diapers are accepted; please make sure diapers are not dried out!
    • Swim diapers are accepted.
  • Give online at

Drop-off at First parish

You can drop off diapers in the vestibule outside our office entrance on Church Street.

This is directly across the street from the town green; use 17 Church Street for GPS and Google Street view. Smaller packages can be dropped in the green bin, and larger boxes can be left on the floor under the table.

receiving diapers has been a Godsend.”
