Hayes Martin Associates, Inc. Participates in Essentials for Young Lives Drive

In May 2008, Hayes Martin Associates donated essential baby items for the homeless mothers and children of Orange County, Ca.

Newport Beach, CA, September 26, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Sandy Keedy, President and Creative Director of Hayes Martin Associates, Inc., has announced that the firm was a participant in HomeAid Orange County’s first “Essentials for Young Lives Drive”, a community-wide effort to collect “essential” baby items for homeless mothers and their children. Keedy serves on the Board of Directors for HomeAid Orange County and has been actively involved with the organization for many years. “I have seen firsthand how HomeAid improves the lives of homeless families and individuals both locally and nationally. We are proud to support HomeAid Orange County’s newest endeavor which benefits homeless infants and toddlers through the county.”

The Newport Beach-based agency specializing in the marketing of the residential lifestyle industry set up a designated collection site in its office where employees and colleagues donated diapers (size newborn to toddler), baby wipes, baby food, formula, bottles, and other general baby products. The essential items collected by Hayes Martin were picked-up by HomeAid and were distributed to 15 Orange County non-profit organizations that serve homeless families and children.

“It’s hard enough to turn away from a homeless man with his hand out. But just imagine if he was a toddler with his baby sister? How would you help them?” questioned Keedy. “HomeAid makes it simple for each one of us to help those in need become healthy and stable. If families and individuals around us are safe and secure, our community becomes stronger.”

“There's not just one way to help. You can donate money. You can donate goods. You can volunteer your time. We thank everyone who joined with us for the first annual “Essentials for Young Lives Drive” to make a lasting difference in the lives of homeless mothers and their children,” continued Keedy. “Every day there is a need to help someone take a step toward self-sufficiency. HomeAid’s giving options assure your donation reaches real families right away to make a significant impact on their future and the future of our community.”
