NOW: $4k Donation helping with infant care in Southwest Michigan

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- Priority Health is helping families in need ahead of Giving Tuesday.

Priority Health has been making donations to local diaper banks since August, helping more than 2,600 families in the process.

Most recently, the organization donated a generous $4,000 to United Through Motherhood, a nonprofit organization providing free diapers, baby wipes, diaper cream and more to families in Southwest Michigan.

This donation will help serve up to 500 families in need, and will be distributed across 8 different sites.

Newborns go through 12 diapers a day, while babies size 1-6 go through about 8 a day.

1 in 3 families suffer from a diaper insufficiency.

11 years ago, there were only 9 sustainable diaper banks across the U.S. Today, there are more than 300.

United Through Motherhood hopes to be the first sustainable diaper bank in Southwest Michigan.

Diaper distribution sites:

  • Center for Better Health, Benton Harbor
  • Intercare Health Network, Benton Heights
  • Berrien County Health Department, Benton Harbor
  • Hope Resources, Coloma
  • Alleman Center, Hartford
  • Neighbor to Neighbor, Berrien Springs
  • Neighbor by Neighbor, Union Pier
