Donations are needed: We are limiting the contact we have with diapers before we send them to families in need. During this health crisis, we are in dire need of: diapers sizes 3, 5, 6; menstrual pads (not liners or tampons); and incontinence products. If you have a donation you would like to drop off at our facilities, please call our Program Resources Officer, Linda Lopez: (210) 461-1871.

In the chaos of a natural disaster, many evacuees lack the time or space to bring many items, especially diapers, wipes, and other healthcare products. Meanwhile, neither federal nor international disaster relief programs include diapers. The Texas Diaper Bank fills this gap by providing these healthcare products, without which instances of diaper rash requiring medical treatment may develop--and when treatment is not available, serious or even fatal complications may occur.

Spring Creek United Methodist Church Disaster Relief Effort is an outreach ministry of Spring Creek United Methodist Church. The purpose of C.A.R.E.S is to provide individuals with in-kind assistance to address needs that arise from natural disasters, catastrophic events, or other emergencies, if such needs are not addressed by the individuals’ existing financial resources, insurance, government assistance, or other private assistance. C.A.R.E.S will provide in-kind assistance by paying for property, the use of property, or services necessary to meet a recipient’s needs. C.A.R.E.S will not provide cash to individual recipients.C.A.R.E.S is an outreach ministry of Spring Creek United Methodist Church. The purpose of C.A.R.E.S is to provide individuals/families within the Texas counties of Bexar, Comal and Kendall with transformational assistance to recover from personal or financial emergencies that put themselves, their family, their continued employment, health and/or residence at risk. This assistance will target persons who have the ability to provide for their own needs until they are faced with an unforeseen circumstance that puts that individual/family at risk for falling into a future of recurring assistance, potential homelessness and for families and children, the possibility of generational poverty. The transformational assistance would be significant enough to see the individual/family through their current challenge and provide a “hand up” that will put them back on track to being self sufficient without further assistance. C.A.R.E.S will provide in-kind assistance by paying for expenses related to such needs as Rent/Mortgage, Household Expenses, Home/Business/Auto Repair, Medical/Health/Rehabilitation and Training/Employment/Education. This list is not comprehensive but provides the intent of the Fund’s uses. C.A.R.E.S. will not provide cash to individual recipients. As needed, the recipient may be required to attend financial training that will assist them with budgeting and managing their available resources in the future.
