Infant and Tot Drive hosted by Yavapai CASA and Hampton Inn
The CAST 11 podcast network is sponsored by the Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit. Where adventure comes together.
The Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation and the Hampton have partnered to address the unmet needs of local infants and toddlers in foster care by hosting an infant and toddler collection through the end of August 2022.
“We were recently contacted by a woman who was hosting her 18 month old nephew.” Said Mona Stephens of Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation. “He arrived in her custody with only the clothes on his back and the aunt was struggling to get diapers, clothes and other essentials for him.”
When Angela Johnson of the Hampton Inn heard this story and how the Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation was able to help with the donations she received for infants through her Toy Chest program, she wanted to make sure that others could get the same support. Thus, the Infant and Tot Drive was born.
Those who want to help are encouraged to donate the following items: formula (especially for sensitivities), baby food, diapers, pull-ups, baby wipes, bibs, bibs, bottles, and receiving blankets. All donations should be dropped off at the Hampton Inn at 3453 Ranch Drive, Prescott by Wednesday, August 31.
All donated items will be split between the Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation, DCS and the Arms of Love Closet for distribution to families in need.
