Over 30 organizations in North Carolina provide free diapers as well as other items for low to moderate income parents of new babies. The agencies, many of which are charities, operate across the state. They tend to focus on residents of the local community, but some of the diaper assistance programs will operate across all of North Carolina.
While each of the organizations will provide baby stuff, it does depend on donation levels. But they will tend to have free disposable and/or cloth diapers. Note many lower income families not only need the diapers, but they need other supplies as well for their newborn. This is why these charity organizations will also try to offer other stuff, ranging from clothing to baby formula, hygiene items, and much more.
When applying, bring proof of income, documentation of birth of the child (such as birth certificate), and details on other factors which may be contributing to the hardship. If found qualified, then either free diapers will be given out (as well as other baby items), or the client may be given gift cards to buy them.
