The Milwaukee Diaper Mission participates in the We can do it campaign, an initiative of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to increase confidence in and uptake of COVID vaccines and strengthen basic prevention measures. National Diaper Bank Network members like the Milwaukee Diaper Mission joined the campaign after vaccines were recommended for children as young as 6 months old.
