HomeAid's Essentials Donation Drive

HomeAid’s 2011 Essentials For Young Lives Donation Drive, May 2-6

HomeAid, in partnership with the Children and Families Commission of Orange County, will collect diapers, baby food and baby hygiene products including baby wipes and lotion which are then distributed to 16 shelters here in Orange County.

Families are the fastest growing segment of Orange County’s homeless population. By receiving these “essential” items, it allows the shelters to expand the use of their already limited resources to help their clients achieve self-sufficiency.

Businesses across Orange County will be participating in the 2011 Essentials for Young Lives Campaign with drop off locations at select VONS grocery stores, Orange County YMCA locations and county offices. The transportation of donations will be provided by United Parcel Service (UPS).

The Donation Drive will kick-off with a family event at The Irvine Spectrum Center® from Noon to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 30. Our office will be hosting donation bins throughout the week of May 2nd. You can also donate throughout the county at the locations listed here: http://www.essentialsforyounglives.org/cat2.php
