Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Diapers of all sizes are helping many Northland families in need.

The diaper drive in Duluth kicked off last week, and the diapers will be donated to CHUM on Monday, March 31st.

Households in Duluth with young children spend an estimated $100 each month on diapers and wipes per child.

These essential materials are not covered by food stamps or WIC, making this drive that much more important.

"Our goal is 10,000 diapers in the month of March. CHUM receives a match from the Minnesota Foodbank pound for pound for all donations in March. So you give one, they get more than one," said Craig Bursch of Leadership Duluth.

CHUM is seeking sizes 4, 5 and 6, but is accepting all diaper sizes.

The drive will continue through Friday, March 28th.
