Girl Power To the Rescue, Plus Call to Action

Brownie troop #32688, Richardson Bay Service Unit

THIS is Girl Power

BIG THANK YOU to Brownie troop #32688 of Marin county who recently held a “mini diaper drive” for us! They collected 688 diapers plus 1300 wipes! And how awesome is this: they got together and decorated the diaper packs so the beneficiaries would know someone else was thinking about them! It is such an honor to have local support from girls who want to make a big difference in the lives of struggling families.  We are so grateful for your help!

Interested in Hosting a Spring Diaper Drive?

We are putting out an S.O.S. to community groups who want to follow the lead of Brownie Troop #32688. We really need help with groups hosting mini-drives for us during the month of May! Office pools, MOPS, Moms groups, play groups, Rotary, J-League, Preschools – we WANT YOU! No drive is too small or too big! Please contact us info  at helpamotherout dotorg to learn more.

San Francisco Locals: Help a Mother Become Computer Savvy

One of our charter partner organizations, Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) currently needs volunteers for their computer lab. If you are local (hey! unemployed techie folks!) please consider volunteering:

HPP is currently looking for bilingual (English/Spanish) computer tutors to help during our normal business hours Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 9am-12pm and 1-5pm, and Tuesday 1-5pm. Our tutors help monitor the computer lab, teach classes, and work one on one with clients who are using the internet to search for jobs and housing, as well as learning to use the computer and e-mail for the very first time.

They would also really love to find a volunteer that is well versed in online resources/communities for mothers that could share these tools with our clients who might be interested in browsing the internet for parenting support in addition to the community services they offer.

Interested volunteers can e-mail
