In conjunction with the Westchester County government, the JLCW launched the Westchester County Diaper Bank in Fall 2014. This is the first Diaper Bank of its kind in the area. The Westchester County Diaper Bank collects wipes and disposable diapers of all sizes, types and brands and gets clean diapers to families unable to afford them.

The project has also included a visit to the White Plains Library to obtain library cards and meet with a librarian, the distribution of back-to-school kits filled with school supplies, exercise sessions for the children, and interactive events with the parents of the young participants.
