State Senator Lous Correa, together with Assemblyman Curt Hagman, took part in yesterday’s kick-off of the â€œEssentials for Young Livesâ€ campaign at State Capitol. TheÂ campaign seeks to collect baby items for homeless mothers and theirÂ kids. As part of the effort, laundry baskets will be placed in legislatorâ€™s offices throughout the Capitol building during two weeks to collect essential baby items.Â Items collected will be delivered to programs and shelters that serve homeless women and children.
The â€œEssentials for Young Livesâ€ campaign is a collective effort by HomeAid and the First 5 Commissions. Â Scott Larson, Executive Director of said, â€œThe homeless in our communities are not just individuals. Â They are children and their families.â€
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.
