Greater DC Diaper Bank
Since 2015, St. Mark’s has hosted a diaper drive in support of the Greater DC Diaper Bank. The bank serves families in need all over our region, each month distributing hundreds of thousands of diapers and other family supplies through their network of social service agencies. Because most federal and state poverty support programs do not cover diapers and hygiene supplies, these families are able to get what they need in the context of comprehensive social support. Members of St. Mark’s have donated more than 14,000 diapers and have made considerable financial contributions over the years in support of this cause.
The diaper and hygiene supply drive runs throughout the month of October each year. Email Marika Klein if you have questions or would like more information.
