“This month, Giant donated a total of 30,000 diapers to 3 local diaper drives, and then we’re sending volunteers out to pack the diapers for all of the children,” Trey Johnson, Giant assistant store manager, said.

Programs that help low-income families, like WIC and SNAP, do not cover diapers, which can cost $900 a year for one baby.
