It’s something every baby needs, diapers. But they can be a huge expense for parents. The CNY Diaper Bank is just one organization helping families get through each month.

It's National Diaper Need Awareness week, and you can lend a hand by joining in the first Syracuse Downtown Diaper Walk.

Michela Hugo, the founder of the CNY Diaper Bank says 1 in 3 moms in Syracuse has to choose between buying food or buying diapers. She also says diapers can usually cost around $100 a month for families. The CNY diaper bank impacts around 3,500 babies each month.
