For families struggling to make ends meet, every expense adds up.
Especially the necessities we don't always think about. For example, Diapers are not covered by government assistance.
That's where places like CNY Diaper Bank can help.
Families in need can get 50 diapers per child each month. This week, the group got a donation of 170,000 diapers from Huggies.
The bank's founder says a donation that large will help Central New York, but there is more to be done.
"The need is enormous,” said, CNY Diaper bank Founder Michela Hugo. “We’re barely scratching the surface with those numbers now."
CNY Diaper Bank has given out more than 600,000 diapers to families in need since they opened in 2016.
