Community Service and Fund-Raising

Women's shelter welcomes new baby!!! :D Donations appreciated!!!

Posada Esperanza is an emergency shelter for refugee women and children. Many of the women arrive in the US pregnant, so detention centers release them to stay in emergency shelters like Posada so they can have a supportive environment as they birth and raise their child. Here is an exciting announcement from the Posada staff:

Posada Esperanza will welcome a baby boy to the family in early June!

To celebrate his fabulous mother's baby shower in May, we are currently accepting donations of newborn and size 1 diapers, wipes, and all *brand new* baby items and clothes.
