The Nappie Project is a diaper bank, not a diaper pantry. What this means is that we do not distribute diapers directly to families in need, but instead provide them to other organizations who do. We do not have the resources to provide diapers to individuals.
If you, or someone you know, is in need of diapers, please contact one of the agencies below to see how to qualify.
We are currently serving the Loveland and Fort Collins branches of the Larimer County Food Banks, as well as providing diapers at the Food Pantry located at the Family Medicine Center in Ft. Collins.
Foster families can receive children any time of the day or night. We offer them “starter packs” to allow them time to get settled with the new baby and not have to rush off to the store. Because these babies are often placed because of neglect, they are small and need the smallest sizes of diapers.
