Research is clear that poverty is the single greatest threat to children's well-being.
The Junior League of Riverside is committed to alleviating the effects of poverty on women and children in the Inland Empire.
Lack of diapers has a profound and complex impact on families, including health risks like rashes and urinary tract infections for children and mental problems such as stress, anxiety, and depression for parents and children.
Our community Diaper Bank addresses the complex issue of diaper need and it's effects on children and their parents. Each month families can recieve a supply of diapers and diaper wipes for each diapered child. As few as 30 extra diapers a month can reduce parents stress and allieviate the difficult choice between diapers and food.
Literacy experts all agree, reading is a fundamental skill that impacts every aspect of a child’s academic success and is a key component for quality of life.
Our Little Libraries provide free reading books of all levels to families where access to books is limited. The average number of books per child in low income neighborhoods is 1 book for every 300 children.
Your $10 per month donation can provide diapers to a child in need. Your $25.00 per month donation can fill a Little Library once a month. Your $50 per month donation can add 200 diapers to our inventory for community distribution. Will you commit to be a monthly partner working to give women and children a hand up?
