O.C. nonprofit needs car and booster seat donations for children in shelter
The Orange County Rescue Mission announced this week that it is in crucial need of car and booster seats for children living in its homeless shelter.
The nonprofit is asking the community to donate 36 car and booster seats to ensure the safety of the children living at the Village of Hope transitional housing facility in Tustin.
“Over the last several months there has been a rapid increase in homelessness throughout the region,” nonprofit president Jim Palmer said in a press release. “In fact, the homeless crisis has been exacerbated as a result of the pandemic.”
The nonprofit is requesting six new infant car seats with a base, 10 new child car seats and 20 new booster seats.
Donations can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Sunday at the Village of Hope at 1 Hope Drive. Donations can also be purchased online and sent to the address.
