To honor and celebrate mothers, HomeAid Orange County in partnership with the Children and Families Commission of Orange County and the YMCA of Orange County, are leading a community-wide drive to collect “essential” baby items (diapers, baby wipes, baby food, baby hygiene products) for homeless mothers and their children.

The kick-off event is scheduled for Saturday, April 24 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Irvine Spectrum Center. Volunteers will be on hand to accept donations at the Giant Wheel Court. The first 200 people to donate a package of diapers will receive a coupon for one free taco at Wahoo’s Fish Taco.

Mothers and children are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. They need our help.
