In late April, Residential Design Services had the opportunity to volunteer as part of the Builders for Babies event that is organized through HomeAid Essentials – an organization whose mission is to end homelessness.  In support of the event, RDS held a diaper drive and contributed well over 4,000 diapers and an abundance of baby wipes. RDS not only donated diapers, wipes and money, we also provided breakfast for all the volunteers at the event.

 

Volunteers helped unload the truckloads of donated diapers  – stacking them on pallets, shrink wrapping the pallets and loading them back onto a truck for delivery.    The event included a builder competition for the best house built out of diaper boxes. RDS supplied flooring in the Toll Bros, Brookfield, CalAtlantic and National Core’s “Hope Station” who won “Best in Show” and “The People’s Choice Award”.  RDS provided the VCT checkerboard flooring for National Core.”

Families represent 61% of those living in Orange County shelters who are in need of basic essential items such as diapers, wipes and food.  HomeAid Essentials is a community wide effort to collect these essential items in partnership with the Children and Families Commission of Orange County.

Being environmentally conscious has always been a topic near and dear to my heart. As an interior designer, mom and recently, a new homeowner, I understand the desire to select materials which are not only safe and meet the lifestyle needs of the occupants, but that are eco-friendly for our environment. It's not hard to do today with such a wide variety of products to choose from.
