ALPHA Pregnancy and Parenting Support announces the kick-off of their Fall fundraising campaign beginning with the $10Give video campaign and the annual Pledge Drive, “Dialing for Diapers and so much more”. Callers will begin calling residents county-wide on Monday September 26th and will call through October 5th. This is the largest fundraising activity for ALPHA raising over $70,000 annually. This year’s goal is $75,000 to support program services to residents of San Luis Obispo County.
ALPHA’s mission is to provide support and practical assistance to pregnant moms and families with infants up to one year of age. In addition to practical support for babies including diapers, formula, clothing and equipment, ALPHA also provides car seats, and supports the Postpartum Depression Warmline and the postpartum wellness website at http://www.postpartumwellness.org.
ALPHA is primarily privately funded and relies on events such as the Pledge Drive to provide services to babies and their moms. In the past 3 years alone, ALPHA has distributed over 23,000 diapers, and provided 390 newborn layettes. San Luis Obispo County reports 2500 to 2700 births annually. ALPHA serves over 500 families a year, close to 20% of the babies born each year in San Luis Obispo by providing diapers, formula and other practical necessities babies need.
