The Columbus Diaper Coalition does not distribute diapers directly to individuals.

Instead, diapers are distributed through a network of partner agencies such as food pantries and other social service organizations. By working with organizations that are established in the community it allows the Columbus Diaper Coalition to contribute a resource to our Partners, increasing their services to the community. It also allows us to be efficient and to utilize our Partner's expertise to distribute to families and babies in need. 

To get free diapers connect with one of our Partner Agencies below.
