HomeAid Atlanta holds its Essentials for Young Lives Drive April 29 – May 6 in honor of Mother’s Day. The 12th annual drive is a community-wide effort to collect “essential” baby items for homeless mothers and their infants.
Donations of diapers, baby wipes, baby food, and formula will be collected in an effort to provide aid to one of the fastest growing segments of the homeless population – women with children.
Donations will be distributed by HomeAid to local nonprofit organizations serving homeless families and children in the metro Atlanta area. Businesses, community organizations and individuals are invited to participate in the drive by collecting essential baby items from employees, customers, members, friends and families. Donations of new items can be dropped off at any of the designated drop-off sites located around the metro Atlanta area, including HomeAid’s office at 1484 Brockett Road in Tucker.
A list of drop-off sites is available online. Donations can also be made online through HomeAid Atlanta’s baby registry at Target.com. To access the registry, enter “HomeAid” for the registrant’s first name and “Atlanta” for the last name. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law. For more information or to host a collection, please contact Jean Hilyard at 678.775.1401 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
