Community Outreach Programs
Essentials Diaper Drive is a program that asks both individuals and corporations to collect, donate and distribute diapers, wipes, formula and baby items to meet the needs of infants and toddlers. To date, this program has raised more than 8 million items!
Builders for Babies is an event benefiting the Essentials Diaper Drive. Local builders come together for a one-day event to collect donations of diapers, wipes, formula and baby food.
Care Days are a means for volunteers to engage in housing maintenance projects. Volunteers work with HomeAid to assist with shelter improvement projects such as landscape renewal, painting, and light construction work.
CareKits are assembled kits with basic personal hygiene items including soap, shampoo and conditioner, lotion, toothbrushes and toothpaste, sunscreen, socks, resource cards, snacks, and bottled water.
Full Bellies, Warm Hearts is a day where children in need are treated to a day of fun, complete with food, games, haircuts, family photos, as well as new coats, shoes, and school supplies.
Back to School Backpack Drive provides homeless youth with backpacks and the needed school supplies to start off a new year eager and ready to learn.
Homelessness Awareness Month held during the month of November encourages participation with HomeAid in many of the above-mentioned activities. Coinciding with National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week that takes place the week before Thanksgiving, this is a perfect time to bring greater awareness to the needs of local communities as well as provide a way to give back and become involved with HomeAid.
