SCARSDALE, N.Y. – Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino and members of the Junior League of Central Westchester cut the ribbon to officially open the Westchester County Diaper Bank.

“Diapers are a basic need for children – as essential as food and shelter,” Astorino said in a press release.

“I want to thank the Junior League of Central Westchester for this tremendous partnership. Along with the county’s Department of Social Services, together we are working to keep babies clean, safe and healthy.”

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Nov. 24 at the Junior League of Central Westchester headquarters at Wayside Cottage in Scarsdale.

Families with economic challenges, who do not have to be existing DSS clients, can apply for a week’s supply of diapers and baby wipes up to three times per year.

The packages are available for multiple children, but applicants must show  proof of Westchester County residence along with each child’s birth certificate during the application process.

“We are so happy to officially open the Westchester County Diaper Bank and are thrilled that Westchester County has partnered with us to make this happen,” Nikki Hahn, president of the Junior League of Central Westchester, said in a press release.

“The Junior League of Central of Westchester believes that with the community’s help, we can significantly reduce diaper deprivation, leading to improved emotional outcomes for babies and their caregivers.”
