bundles of joy

Bundles of Joy is a diaper bank that provides struggling families in Marathon County with diapers and formula. The diapers and formula are distributed through select agencies serving low income families. WIC is the only location where formula is distributed.

Place request in advance for diapers and formula

WIC distributes both diapers, size 1-5, and formula upon request in Wausau, Athens, Edgar, Mosinee, Spencer and Stratford. Requests should be made in advance of pick-up so that WIC staff are sure to have the size of diaper or type of formula available. Typically only WIC-approved formulas will be provided unless the infant is a special needs child.

Children needing diapers larger than a size 5 may contact their local Family Resource Center for classes on potty training for their child.

Families must complete a brief, confidential survey at the time of pick-up to receive diapers or formula. Demographic and family-income information is collected.

Families need to be a WIC participant or apply for WIC at the time they pick-up formula. This requirement is in place so the Bundles of Joy Program will continue to have enough funding to meet the need of all families on an on-going basis.

Requests can be made by calling the WIC Program at 800-246-5743.
