Senator Correa Backs Effort to Help Homeless Women & Children

  

State Senator Lous Correa, together with Assemblyman Curt Hagman, took part in yesterday’s kick-off of the “Essentials for Young Lives” campaign at State Capitol. The campaign seeks to collect baby items for homeless mothers and their kids. As part of the effort, laundry baskets will be placed in legislator’s offices throughout the Capitol building during two weeks to collect essential baby items.  Items collected will be delivered to programs and shelters that serve homeless women and children.

The “Essentials for Young Lives” campaign is a collective effort by HomeAid and the First 5 Commissions.  Scott Larson, Executive Director of said, “The homeless in our communities are not just individuals.  They are children and their families.”

Essentials for Young Lives is a community-wide effort to collect much needed items for homeless infants and toddlers. HomeAid partners with businesses, community organizations and individuals to collect “essential” baby items – diapers, baby wipes, baby food and baby hygiene products. Donations benefit HomeAid’s service provider partners that serve homeless families and children.

    Are these the same families that Correa voted to tax an extra $1000 this year? The lying liar broke his no taxes pledge.
