South Bay Call Center is Answering the Need for Diapers During the Coronavirus Crisis.
The average baby goes through 8,000 disposable diapers—at approximately 40 cents each—before potty training at about 21 months old, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
So how does a family at or below the poverty level budget for an additional $3200 during a pandemic with people hoarding paper goods?
Currently, the need for diapers is second only to food at Love, in the Name of Christ South Bay. The Christian-based call center based in San Pedro helps families in need connecting them to other agencies, church ministries and other caring individuals.
Featured Love Story
We’re still here helping during the COVID-19 Stay-At-Home orders, and Maria was very happy when she called to hear the voice of Cecilia, our Clearinghouse Director, at the other end of the line. Maria is one of numerous desperate mothers who have called Love INC SB in need of diapers and wipes. This is a need we typically get calls for, but in this time of crisis, these calls for help have tripled. . .
