Rentals America’s charitable and volunteer program, Rentals America Cares, is sponsoring a basic essentials drive to support local nonprofit, 2nd Time Parenting in its mission to support and empower grandparents in the often difficult situation of raising their grandchildren.


The “Basic Essentials Drive,” which runs through Dec. 20, 2019, will collect items for all ages to fill emergency backpacks and diaper bags with the essentials children need in sudden, life-changing situations.


“These children after often in situations where it is an emergency placement,” said 2nd Time Parenting founder CeCe Vance. “Like kids going into foster care, they come to their grandparents with the clothes they’re wearing and that’s it.”


Items needed to fill the bags include but are not limited to: pajamas, shampoo, deodorant, diapers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, blankets, hair accessories, school supplies, grooming services, clothes, shoes, socks, body soap, diaper bags and backpacks. 2nd Time Parenting can only accept donations of new items at this time.


Rentals America is accepting donations at their office during business hours. The office is located at 4711 E. Falcon Drive, Suite 221, in Mesa and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
