    Nestlings wishes you all well in these uncertain times.  Please be careful, be patient and take care of you and yours.  Check on your neighbors and friends, together we will all get through this. 

    Until further notice Nestlings has gone into Emergency Response Mode.  What does this mean?  That means Nestlings is here to respond to diaper need. The income limits to receive diapers and wipes has been lifted.  If a family needs diapers, they will be given some.  

    In upcoming weeks and months, the need will be great, but none of this changes a baby’s daily need for clean diapers and wipes.  Expenses and paychecks are going to get tight for many families.  Diapers and wipes will be a big factor in helping to alleviate stress on expenses. 

    Partner agencies are not seeing clients, schools are closed, people are locked out of offices.  These factors and rapidly changing times are impacting the way Nestlings distributes diapers. Nestlings is coordinating with the community effort to get diapers to the Food Pantries, Community Organizations, Doctors Offices, Health Dept. etc.  Nestlings has already responded to their needs and calls for diapers.

    Nestlings diaper supply is emptying at a significant rate. We recently celebrated the 1 millionth diaper distributed and 1 week ago set a monthly distribution record of over 28,000 diapers given to our partner agencies. The demand for diaper supply will be a struggle to keep up with now and in the upcoming future, but Nestlings is committed to its mission to have clean, dry diapers readily available for babies. Please consider helping Nestlings to assist our community and its littlest members. 

    Thank you all for your support during this time.  Together as a community we can get through these challenges. Be safe and stay healthy.
    Thank you,
