Stroller Drive for Homeless Women

Homeless Mothers Need Strollers 
for Their Babies

Community First Credit Union is collecting strollers to benefit mothers who are served by the generosity and kindness of The Living Room in Santa Rosa.

Baby Strollers are the single most critical and consistent need of the women and children who are helped by The Living Room. Drop off a baby stroller in good mechanical order directly to The Living Room. Monday through Friday, between 9a and 1p. 636 Cherry St., Santa Rosa, CA 95404. Between Mendocino and Humboldt. 579-0138.

You can also drop off a well-conditioned stroller to either of Community First’s full-service branches in Santa Rosa, M–F, 1–5p. 501 College (@ Mendocino) or 70a Stony Point Rd. (south of Finley Aquatic Center)

The Living Room is the only daytime drop-in center in Sonoma County that serves homeless and at-risk women and their children. If fills a special need in conjunction with other community agencies, providing clients with a place to be during the day when shelters are closed. It is also a critical first stop for women who are on the verge of becoming homeless, the first place that at-risk or newly homeless turn to for relief and referral guidance.

For every accepted stroller you donate:
Community First donates $10 to The Living Room
–– and ––
Community First gives you $10 toward the CFCU account of your choice
