Do you know anyone down in San Luis Obispo? CalPoly students and college alumni? Mommy bloggers, grandmas, extended family, church folk, local media? If so, we could sure use your help getting the word out about collecting diapers, travel toiletries, etc.
During our big Mother’s Day donation push and chaos, we quietly added another wonderful day center to our May Donation Campaign (through MAY 31st): The Prado Day Center. We met them through the Twitterverse (@friendsofprado is tweeps with @hardlynormal).
From their website: The Prado Day Center is the only day center serving the homeless population in the region. Every day, between 90 to 120 people seek refuge and assistance at the Center and over 30 percent of the Center’s participants are now women and children.
