Over 900 Families Served by MOMS Orange County will Benefit from Donation of Diapers and Other Baby Items from Local Community Organization
Santa Ana-based nonprofit MOMS Orange County recently had the privilege of receiving two truckloads of baby items donated by HomeAid Essentials, a community outreach program of HomeAid Orange County. The diapers and other baby items, valued at more than $15,000, will benefit more than 900 at-risk families served by MOMS Orange County.
“We are honored to receive this generous donation from HomeAid Essentials,” said MOMS Orange County CEO Pam Pimentel. “Donations such as this are the foundation of our organization. Without the support of community organizations like HomeAid Orange County, our mission to support at-risk mothers and families would not be possible.”
Two, full-size box trucks held 348 boxes of diapers, 72 diaper packages, 69 Pull-Ups® training pants and 164 diaper wipes. MOMS Orange County will be able to distribute more than 66,000 individual diapers to the families they serve.
