National Diaper Need Awareness Week


Austin Diaper Bank is celebrating National Diaper Need Awareness Week.  

Join us by making a contribution to the Austin Diaper Bank and supporting families in Central Texas.  

The Austin Diaper Bank will celebrate national Diaper Need Awareness Week (Sept. 25-Oct. 1) with an open house at its warehouse to thank the community, donors, volunteers and partners for their support of the Austin Diaper Bank’s recent Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, during which more than 750,000 baby and adult diapers were distributed to hurricane-impacted areas throughout Texas.

The open house will be 4-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29, at the Austin Diaper Bank, 8711 Burnet Road, Suite B-34.

The event also will be the first opportunity for many to meet new Austin Diaper Bank Executive Director Holly McDaniel, who joined the nonprofit on Aug. 22

“Diaper Need Awareness Week is a great time for the public to learn how the diapers distributed year-round by the Austin Diaper Bank make a difference for thousands of Central Texas families who struggle to afford diapers,” McDaniel said. “Diaper need impacts an estimated 12,000 babies and toddlers in Travis County alone, in addition to a growing number of adults.”

“Diaper need” is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep an infant, toddler or senior clean, dry and healthy. Disposable diapers are typically a requirement of most childcare centers or other childhood education programs – without childcare, parents cannot go to work. Federal assistance programs, such as SNAP and WIC, do not cover diapers.

Diaper Need Awareness Week is an initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network, of which the Austin Diaper Bank is a member. In Texas, Diaper Need Awareness Week has been recognized with a proclamation from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

The Austin Diaper Bank helps close the "diaper gap" in the community by distributing donated or purchased baby and adult diapers to more than 40 partner agencies, in a region from Georgetown to San Marcos. Since the organization’s founding in June 2013, it has delivered about 750,000 diapers locally. Learn more at www.austindiaperbank.org, or follow on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Holly McDaniel Joins Austin Diaper Bank as Executive Director


The Austin Diaper Bank is pleased to welcome Holly McDaniel as its new executive director, effective Aug. 22. McDaniel succeeds Beverly Hamilton, who founded the Austin Diaper Bank in 2013 and will remain on the nonprofit’s Board of Directors.

McDaniel brings to the Austin Diaper Bank more than 15 years of leadership experience at several nonprofits in both Austin and California, focusing on business development, nonprofit management and donor development. She was chosen by the Austin Diaper Bank Board of Directors after an extensive search process.

“As the Austin Diaper Bank enters its fifth year, we believe Holly has the skills, experience and enthusiasm needed to grow the Austin Diaper Bank to better meet the diaper needs of families, children and seniors in Central Texas,” said Board Chairman Julie Remde. “We are lucky to have someone of Holly’s talent on board and are excited to work with her to move the Austin Diaper Bank forward.”

“I look forward to working with the Board of Directors, staff and volunteers to create an exciting new chapter in the Austin Diaper Bank’s development and ensure we meet the diaper needs of all families in Austin and our surrounding communities,” McDaniel said.

Most recently, McDaniel served as director of development at Art Alliance Austin. During her three years with the organization, she managed and led the development department and was part of an executive team that guided Art Alliance Austin through a complete overhaul of programming, outreach and business relationships.

Previously, she was director of individual giving and philanthropy at KMFA, 89.5, the classical public radio station in Austin. While living in California, McDaniel served Polytechnic School in Pasadena as director of its annual fund, and was special events manager for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) in Los Angeles.

McDaniel earned a bachelor’s degree in art history from Occidental College in Los Angeles.

The Austin Diaper Bank, a local 501(c)(3) organization (www.austindiaperbank.org) helps close the "diaper gap" in the community by distributing donated or purchased diapers for needy babies and seniors through more than 40 partner agencies in a region from Georgetown to San Marcos. To date, the Austin Diaper Bank has distributed more than 750,000 diapers.

A New Year Means Strengthening Our Advocacy for Diaper Affordability


One way to increase the affordability of a child's basic need of diapers is to not tax them. Sales tax is 8.25% here in Texas. That might be the difference between a family's being able to afford the $1,000 annual cost of diapers for one child or a baby sitting in a soiled diaper for too long to stretch their diaper supply. House Bill 221 proposes to do just that, along with rolling back sales tax for another important need: feminine hygiene products. KEYE, the local CBS affiliate, recently covered the bill and the work of Austin Diaper Bank: View video and article here.
