Need Help with Diapers?

If you or someone you know is in need of an emergency supply of diapers, you can access help by going to the Bay-Arenac Diaper Bank Pantry locations listed below during open hours. We want to be able to provide this basic necessity and be a support for those who are struggling at this time. We do not require ID or proof of income, only that you ask for help when there is a genuine need, not to stock up or sell the diapers you've received. Help is limited to Bay and Arenac Counties.
