Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank, a Cincinnati nonprofit that only launched in 2015, has announced that it has already donated 1 million diapers to families that otherwise might have trouble affording to provide their babies with enough diapers for them to stay clean, dry and healthy. It says some 16,000 children in the Greater Cincinnati require such each month to avoid "diaper need." Sweet Cheeks partners with local social service agencies.

“One million diapers donated is a major accomplishment for us, and we are excited to be hitting this milestone so quickly,” says the nonprofit's founder and CEO Megan Fischer in a press release. “Thanks to our partner agencies, donors, sponsors and volunteers, we have been able to ramp up our diaper distribution this year and serve more families and babies in Greater Cincinnati than ever before. We can’t wait to keep growing and get even closer to wiping out diaper need in our community.

“By assisting families during what can be one of the most challenging times in a parent’s life, we’re working to build a strong community for the future," Fischer says.
