Who We Are

Who Needs a Change? of the High Country was founded in March 2012, by Meggan Knight, a former educator with Watauga County Schools. Who Needs a Change? is a diaper bank that distributes diapers to local families in need in the High Country of North Carolina. We are supported by our community through donations and diaper drives. Who Needs a Change? of the High Country is a project of the non-profit organization The Children's Council of Watauga  (www.thechildrenscouncil.org) . 

Thank You to Our Supporters!

Madison's Story

Madison donates each year for her birthday to a charity of her choice instead of receiving gifts herself. In March 2012, the same month her little brother was born, she decided to donate to Who Needs a Change? of the High Country. This started our diaper bank today and we are still thankful! 

"Every year on Madison's birthday she chooses a charity to collect for instead of receiving gifts from friends.  I make a list of charities and she chooses the one she wants to give to.  She chose Who Needs a Change because her brother was born in March 2012 and she thought it would be awful for babies to have to stay in diapers that were "messed up like her brothers".   She said that all babies should have diapers like her baby brother." -Christy Welch

Blowing Rock Elementary also held a Competition Diaper Drive among each classroom, pictured is a student bringing boxes of diapers to school.
