Councilmember Kevin McCarty's 6th annual Mother's Day Drive

Over the past six weeks, Councilmember McCarty has been encouraging community members to donate parenting supplies such as new or gently used baby clothing, educational games, baby food, diapers, books, strollers and toiletries to the 6th annual McCarty Mother’s Day Drive. 

More than 36 blue barrels were filled with diapers, baby clothes, infant formula, toys, books and even a few hand-sewn quilts to be donated to local families who attend Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS)' Parent Education program.

SFBFS’ Parent Education program guides and empowers parents to give their children a bright and happy future. Anyone raising children is welcome to enroll in free educational classes, which include positive discipline, growth stages, car seat safety, healthy snacks on a budget, During Your Pregnancy and much more. Upon completion of courses, parents earn credits, in the form of Baby Bucks, which can be used to shop at SFBFS’ Baby Boutique to purchase clothing, food, diapers and other items new parents greatly need.
