Raising a family is challenging enough, no matter your income. But when you don't have financial means, worrying about the cost of diapers, baby-wipes, and hygiene products only creates more stress for new families. In honor of Mother's Day, we will be assembling New Mom & Baby Care kits for the Women's Daytime Drop-In Center which provides resources for homeless women and their children.
This is an engaging opportunity for children and families to learn about challenges facing new parents in the Bay Area. This event will be engaging and accessible for everyone, especially young minds and eager hearts. Let's exercise our compassion muscle and support families in need.
When & Where:
- May 7th, 2023, 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
- Lamorinda Music, 81 Lafayette Cir, Lafayette, CA
What you will do:
- Learn about issues facing low-income and homeless families in the Bay Area
