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
