ATLANTA - April 18, 2018 - PRLog -- HomeAid Atlanta's 17th Annual Essentials Drive kicks off on April 30 and runs through May 8 in honor of Mother's Day. The Essentials Drive is a metro Atlanta drive to collect "essentials" such as diapers, baby wipes, baby food and formula for homeless infants and toddlers.  On any night, an estimated 7,500 metro Atlanta residents are homeless, with almost 50% percent them being women and children.  HomeAid Atlanta first launched the Essentials Drive in 2002 in an effort to provide aid to this most vulnerable homeless population. Thanks to community support, the Essentials Drive has collected more than one million essential baby items since 2002, assisting countless babies and moms.

Just before Mother's Day, Atlanta-based UPS will partner with HomeAid Atlanta for the twelfth year by assisting with delivery of donated items.  All donations go to local nonprofit organizations that provide housing and supportive services to homeless infants, toddlers, and their families.  Several of these organizations operate in HomeAid-built facilities.
