Obama wants to close the “diaper gap”

On Mother’s Day, President Obama announced on Medium that 740 non-profit locations around the country are now part of the Community Diaper Program, a partnership launched in March between e-commerce company Jet, diaper brand Cuties and the White House. (Here’s an explainer from Jet about the program.) American businesses have also donated over three million diapers to diaper banks. 

I can’t imagine what it would have been like to be a parent that has to choose between diapers and other basic expenses. Access to clean diapers isn’t just important for a child’s health and safety. 

He hopes to report more good news on this effort by Father’s Day.
