Orange County Rescue Mission is in desperate need of diapers for the toddlers and young children living at Village of Hope, a transitional living facility for homeless families.
The nonprofit is seeking diapers in sizes 5 and 6, as well as 3T-4T boys and girls pull-up diapers and wet wipes.
“We have received generous community donations of newborn and smaller infant-size diapers, but the ongoing need for larger sizes and pull-up diapers is often underestimated,” said Jim Palmer, president of Orange County Rescue Mission.
Rising homelessness as a result of the pandemic has contributed to this ongoing need, the mission said.
Those who wish to donate or host a Diaper Drive can drop off donations at Village of Hope at 1 Hope Drive, Tustin, 92782. Donations can also be made online and delivered to that address.
For more information, go to rescuemission.org/urgent-baby-needs.
The facility’s donation warehouse is open between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Sunday.
