Areas of Focus The Junior League of Stamford-Norwalk is committed to responding to the needs of the community. A recent survey of our membership coupled with thorough research in the community has identified our new focus are as child literacy in addition to our Diaper Co-Op.
Kimberly Clark – manufacturer of the diaper brand Huggies – asked us to join in their national diaper need awareness program called Every Little Bottom. Through Every Little Bottom, Huggies will donate up to 20 million diapers to needy U.S. families in the next eight months. This national campaign sheds light on what JLSN's Diaper Co-Op, a diaper bank established in October 2008 to provide diapers for needy families in our area. So far the Diaper Co-Op has served 100 families in our service area, and we have distributed over 360,000 diapers.
