Surrey Women’s Centre’s #DiaperCampaign Benefits Low Income Mothers Living In Surrey

Surrey Women’s Centre’s #DiaperCampaign Benefits Low Income Mothers Living In Surrey

Collecting diaper donations for mothers living in Surrey August 1-­18

Surrey, BC | August 1, 2017 | Surrey Women’s Centre will be collecting diaper donations from August 1-­‐18th, benefiting under-­‐privileged mothers who have a difficult time providing for their families. Here are the ways you can contribute to the #DiaperCampaign cause:

  • Donate a box of new, unopened diapers to the Surrey Women’s Centre between August 1-­‐18th, 2017. Call Amanda at
    604-­‐589-­‐1868 Ext. 243 for more details on drop off location and times.
  • Share the #DiaperCampaign on social media via Surrey Women’s Centre Facebook Post [facebook.com/SurreyWomensCentre].

For every 5 shares, Shoppers Drug Mart will donate a box of diapers to mothers in need.

Unfortunately, diapers are quite expensive. Forty dollars is about the cheapest you can find a month’s supply of diapers for. When you’re a single mom on welfare, $40 is a big chunk of your income when you need to pay for rent, food, clothes and other basic necessities as well.

Chantal, a young single mom, can’t always afford diapers for her daughter Skye – and she is not alone. Many single moms struggle to provide the basics for their babies. “I sacrifice my food for Skye,” explains Chantal. “I’d rather have her eat and have diapers than me eat for a whole day.”

Many moms, like Chantal, end up working part time and depend on welfare because of the difficulty finding affordable childcare. The irony is, if they had affordable childcare, they would be able to go to work full time.

According to the Canadian Diaper Bank, most childcare facilities require a parent to provide a supply of disposable diapers ahead of time. Many do not accept reusable, cloth diapers -­‐ which are usually cheaper.

“It’s hard. I’m struggling, but better me struggle through life than me have nothing at all,” says Chantal. In 2015, Surrey Women’s Centre and Shoppers Drug Mart partnered up, and with your help, provided over 200 moms with diapers. This year we aim to do the same.

Chantal and her eighteen month old daughter Skye, received diapers from the 2015 campaign. That month she didn’t have to decide between food and diapers, she could have both.

This August, you can help Chantal and other moms in need again. Being a mom is hard enough. Let’s help make it easier. We would like to thank our generous partners, Shoppers Drug Mart for supporting moms and babies in need for the second year of our #DiaperCampaign.
