There are free diapers passed out from dozens of locations in King County. The charities that run these assistance programs accept donations from the public, and the goods are then passed out to income qualified, struggling families. Whether it is diapers that are needed, free baby furniture (cribs, car seats, etc.) or other supplies for an infant, help is available.
The majority of the agencies are located in the city of Seattle, but there are some other organizations across King County. The assistance is generally for parents with new babies or infants under the age of 5, but the criteria will vary. All sorts of clients can get free diapers and other supplies, including single moms or dads, individuals living in a shelter, or the so called working poor.
Not only may baby stuff be given out by a church or charity, but there are other goods too. This may range from a box of food (with infant formula) up to gift cards to buy clothes, financial aid, and applications to WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children) vouchers for pregnant women.
