OC Sheriff Sandra Hutchens implores community to help families in need with annual ‘essentials’ drive

Sheriff Sandra Hutchens is encouraging the community to participate in a countywide drive to collect baby essentials for families in need.

From now until June 8, HomeAid Orange County, in partnership with the Children and Families Commission of Orange County, will be collecting basic baby essentials such as diapers, wipes and food, which will be distributed to families in our community.  

“The average family needs 3,000 diapers a year for one child,” said Hutchens, who serves as the Honorary Chair for the HomeAid Essentials Campaign. “For homeless families, this means choosing between diapers or food, and that’s no choice any family should have to make.”

HomeAid Orange County will be collecting items at the Builders for Babies event June 8 underneath the “Big A” at Angel Stadium.

In addition, residents can set up their own essentials drive or make an online donation by visiting
