BRISTOL, Tenn. -

The Tri-Cities Diaper Ministry will be marking Diaper Need Awareness Week with the issuance of proclamations by the cities of Kingsport and Bristol. 

Diaper Need Awareness Week will run from September 9 to 15 and calls attention to the fact that low-income families cannot afford enough diapers to keep their babies clean, dry and healthy.

Tri-Cities Diaper Ministry will  hold many events during the week to promote the awareness of the need for diapers. 

The week kicks off on September 8 with a Gospel Singing at Virginia Avenue Baptist Church in Bristol, Va. as way to raise funds that will go towards purchasing diapers. 

There will also be  a community forum at the Slater Center in Bristol, Tenn. on  September 12 on the issue of diaper need and the many effects that it has on the community.

Tri-Cities Diaper Ministry provides diapers to many agencies and organizations in the Tri Cities.
