The homes and shelter facilities we build and renovate are beautiful, welcoming, and comforting, but they are missing some of the most basic items that a person needs to recover from homelessness and get back on their feet. Filling refrigerators with much-needed food or homes with new kitchen utensils and bathroom supplies is just one way that your volunteering efforts can make a positive difference in someone’s life!

You can help this holiday season by donating diapers and wipes to our “Builders for Babies” initiative.

Since 2018, HomeAid has collected more than 200 boxes of diapers and wipes, all of which are delivered to local emergency shelters and other housing and nonprofit organizations by HomeAid Board members.

How You Can Help:

  • Donate boxes of diapers (larger sizes and pull-ups preferred) and wipes directly to HomeAid
  • Host a collection drive at your office, church, community center, or wherever you gather with family and friends

When:

Please deliver donations to HomeAid, or schedule a pickup by calling Cilda Pretorius at 703-953-3525, no later than
Friday, December 13.

Utilize your special skills and interests to help shelter residents!

Are you great at organizing in a small space? Can you show someone the basics of cooking or healthy eating? Could you teach yoga or take a great family photo? Do you have other skills or special talents that you would be willing to share with a small group of homeless clients seeking to better their circumstance and become productive citizens in our community? If so, HomeAid can match you with one of our shelter partners interested in having you share your skills with others. We are seeking a multitude of skills and interests so please let us know how you would like to participate.

Join a HomeAid Event Committee!
