HomeAid Colorado 2015 Essentials for Young Lives Donation Drive

May 10, 2015

HomeAid Colorado recently kicked off it's annual Essentials for Young Lives Donation Drive



The Essentials for Young Lives Drive is HomeAid’s annual community-wide drive to collect “essentials” such as diapers, baby wipes, and formula for homeless infants and toddlers. The drive is conducted in conjunction with Mother’s Day, providing a great opportunity to help homeless mothers and their babies. The donation drive runs from May 10 - June 21, 2015.

Essential items needed include diapers (sizes newborn and up), baby wipes, and formula. Monetary donations are also accepted at hacolo.org/essentials. Unfortunately, they cannot accept baby food, toys, or any used items. All items must be new and in original packaging. 

All items collected are distributed to local nonprofit organizations serving homeless families and children. Some of these organizations operate facilities built in partnership with HomeAid Colorado.

Norris Design is one of many local collection points. Please feel free to swing by our office or any one of HomeAid's other drop-off locations to drop off an essential item to help our neighbors in need.

Norris Design's Katrina Kowalski is Co-Chair of the HomeAid Colorado Leadership committee. Feel free to email her at kkowalski@norris-design.com for more information.


HomeAid's mission is to build and maintain dignified housing. From emergency shelters to transitional housing to permanent supportive housing, every HomeAid project includes support services that help residents move toward self-sufficiency, such as education and job skills training, financial education, counseling and other support. HomeAid builds housing for homeless families and individuals, then donates it to partner nonprofit care providers who serve the homeless. HomeAid provides construction-related technical assistance as well as in-kind labor and materials from the building industry, which allows our partners to focus their energy and resources on providing direct services to the homeless while we take care of construction.
