The bottom line: More than 1 million diapers for those in need The Weyerhaeuser Company's fourth-annual Operation Diaper Drive set a new record this year for donations of diapers and funds to buy diapers.

Our Impact on Poverty in America

When you consider factors in child well-being, diapers might not readily pop into mind. But for low-income families, having enough diapers is especially critical.

World Vision partners with the Weyerhaeuser Company and its annual Operation Diaper Drive to distribute diapers through other partners to parents in need. We work to give children and families the help they need to achieve life in all its fullness, so that we can make an impact on poverty in the communities where we serve. Learn more about the impact of diapers.
