Bowling For Babes Fundraiser

Sunday, September 25, 2016 Who Needs A Change? held a bowling tournament to help raise funds for more diapers in our bank and kick off Diaper Awareness Week! With the help of local businesses such as Vidalia Restaurant and Appalachian Sportswear of Boone, NC, we were able to raise $650 total! Also a huge thank you to High Country Lanes and Meat Camp Church for their donations to our diaper bank fundraiser as well! 

Community Helpers

What a wonderful gift these parents have given their children by encouraging them to get involved in the community and help those who are less fortunate. The value of doing charitable acts for others is rewarding and children feel a sense of pride when they realize they are making someone else's life better. These beautiful girls requested diapers instead of toys for their birthday party and collected 1,024 diapers!!!Thank you girls!! There are many happy, healthy and dry babies in your community because of you.

Diaper Awareness Week

September 8th-14th 2014

North Carolina Governor Patrick McCrory has proclaimed the week of September 8th-14th as Diaper Awareness week. This week citizens are encouraged to donate generously to diaper banks, organizations such as “Who Needs a Change? of the High Country” that  distribute diapers to families in need.  What is diaper need? Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep an infant or toddler clean, dry and healthy. 1 in 3 American families struggle with diaper need, not having enough diapers for their baby. Diaper Awareness Week draws attention to this consequence of poverty. Governors and mayors are issuing proclamations to show support.  Who Needs a Change? of the High Country like other diaper banks rely on the generosity of the community for financial support and diaper donations. Please show your support on Diaper Awareness Week, September 8th-14th and help children in your community by donating diapers to your local diaper bank or by making a financial donation. When making a financial donation please make check to: The Children’s Council of Watauga County and in the memo line write: “Who Needs a Change”

Please bring all diaper donations to:

The Children’s Council of Watauga County, Inc

Diaper Awareness Week Sept 10th-17th

posted Sep 8, 2013, 7:18 PM by Meggan Knight

September 10th through the 17th is Diaper Awareness Week. It takes between 8 to 12 diapers a day to keep a baby clean, healthy and happy.That can add up to a lot of money - more than $150 a month. WIC and food stamps do not cover diaper purchases. Please help babies in your community by dropping off diapers to the local diaper bank "Who Needs a Change? of the High Country" located at The Watauga County Children's Council. You may also bring your donations to The Children's Playhouse 400 Tracy Circle Boone. We accept all sizes and can accept open packages.
