Sea of Smiles Monthly Sponsorship – Supporting our Cincinnati Community!

June 2017 – Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank

Sweet cheeks Diaper Bank partners with local social service agencies to provide diapers to low-income families while raising awareness of the basic health needs for diapers.  Their mission is to eliminate the existence of diaper need in our community so that ALL babies have a chance to be healthy, happy and safe.

The fact are staggering: every day, 1 in 3 families in America struggle to afford diapers for their children.  Diaper wearing children in poverty in the United States require more than 5.8 billion dollars annually to keep them clean, dry and healthy.  For this reason, Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank started the only diaper bank serving the entire Greater Cincinnati area to fill the diaper need gap in our community.

Thank you Megan Fischer, CEO & Founder of Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank and Sea of Smiles patient mom for sharing this organization with us.  We are proud to sponsor such a worthy cause!
