GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Diaper Bank of the Carolinas and its community partners are holding a diaper drive to collect one million diapers for Upstate families in need.

Rosylin Weston with DBC said during a news conference Friday that Operation Dry Baby Bottoms will help combat “Diaper Need” in the area.

“Diaper Need is the inadequate supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry and healthy,” Weston said.

Weston and others spoke about Diaper Need and how limited access to diapers can lead to diaper rash, infections, and other ailments.

During the news conference, officials from the City of Greenville said Mayor Knox White had proclaimed September to be Diaper Need Awareness Month.

People are encouraged to participate in the following ways:

  • Buy diapers and drop them off at designated locations (see below).
