The Essentials Drive is HomeAid’s annual community-wide drive to collect “essentials” such as diapers, baby wipes, baby food and formula for homeless infants and toddlers. The drive, held annually since 2002, is conducted in conjunction with Mother’s Day, providing a great opportunity to help homeless mothers and their babies. Sadly, an estimated 7,500 people in Metro Atlanta are homeless on any given night and almost 50% are women and children. Thanks to the support of people like you, this drive has collected over a million essential baby items (as of 2017), assisting hundreds of moms and babies in the metro Atlanta area.
