Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
“If their baby or toddler is suffering, parents are suffering, and it can be difficult to focus on anything else." * Pam Russell
Story Summary (100 Character Max):

The Women and Children’s Center of the Sierra is addressing this problem — with your help.

Imagine a baby or toddler being forced to sit in a wet, dirty diaper or an old plastic grocery bag because his or her parents can’t afford diapers. For anyone who has had a baby or been around a baby, this is practically unfathomable.
