Successful Diapers and Wipes Donation Drive

(Los Alamitos, CA) – The City of Los Alamitos, in partnership with HomeAid Essentials, successfully hosted a Diapers and Wipes Donation Drive, collecting a total of 4,457 diapers, 9,610 wipes, and several miscellaneous baby essentials valued at over $2,300. The City would like to thank everyone who participated, including Boy Scout Troop 658 from Los Alamitos and their scouts who personally delivered a generous donation.

HomeAid Essentials, in partnership with the Children and Families Commission of Orange County, is a community outreach campaign to provide a year’s supply of diapers to homeless babies in Orange County shelters.

Boy Scout Troop 658 was established in 1958 and recently celebrated its 60th Birthday. The Scouts participate in community service, camping, skiing, surfing, earning merit badges on different careers and hobbies. Troop 658 always welcomes new members – check out the Scout created website https://sites.google.com/view/Troop-658-Los-alamitos for more information.

Up next, the City of Los Alamitos is partnering with Los Alamitos nonprofits on the inaugural Citywide volunteer service event, “Serve Los Al,” scheduled for June 29th and 30th. Volunteers are requested to pre-register at www.servelosal.org and sign up for specific projects.
