HUGGIES® AND WALGREENS® ENCOURAGE PARENTS TO JOIN THEM IN SUPPORTING FAMILIES WHO HAVE DIAPER NEEDS

For each pack of Huggies® Diapers purchased at a Walgreens store or online at Walgreens.com in August, Huggies® will donate a day’s worth of diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network, up to 1 million diapers.

NEENAH, Wis., August 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In August, for the sixth consecutive year, Kimberly-Clark’s North American Huggies® Brand and Walgreens team up to raise awareness of the need for diapers in United States, supporting those struggling to provide diapers for their children. One on three1 families in the United States need diapers and are unable to provide enough diapers to help keep their child’s skin clean, dry and healthy.

Throughout August, Huggies® and Walgreens are encouraging people across the country to help support this important cause. For each pack of Huggies® Diapers purchased at a Walgreens store or online at Walgreens.com in August, Huggies® will give the equivalent of a day2 diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network – up to one million diapers. Since 2011, Huggies® and the National Diaper Bank Network have helped provide more than 300 million diapers to those in need.

“When a baby does not have access to clean diapers, they are exposed to potential health risks, which is driving this important collaboration with Walgreens and the National Diaper Bank Network,” said Robert RainesVice President of Marketing for Huggies® North America. “Many people don’t realize how widespread the need for diapers is in our country, and through this partnership, we will educate and encourage people to join us in supporting families to help babies and children to flourish.”

“In our pursuit of a happier life through better health, Walgreens is proud to partner with Huggies for the sixth consecutive year,” said John Gremer, Director of Community Affairs at Walgreens. “Educating families about diaper needs is important to help families in the local communities we serve.”

Arin Wright – professional Chicago soccer player and mother of two-year-old son – partners with Huggies® to help raise awareness of the giving program with Walgreens and encourage its fans to participate in giving. Wright isn’t just an advocate on the court — she’s been a strong advocate for new parents facing challenges, such as maternity leave, balancing career and parenthood, fertility services and child care.

“There are so many things to think about when raising a child, and it pains me to know that so many families have to worry about not knowing if they will have enough clean diapers today,” Wright said. . “I’m going to buy my Huggies® at Walgreens this month to help generate donations for families in need, and I will be asking my friends, teammates and family to do the same. I hope people across the country will join us in this important mission to help ensure more parents have access to clean diapers. »
