  • (1888PressRelease) July 20, 2020 - Clearwater, FL – To help ease stress in young mothers during the Covid-19 pandemic, Kimberly Home, a Clearwater pregnancy resource center, teamed up with Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) to collect and distribute over 400 baby-care items to new moms in need. The donation drive in Clearwater started July 15th and continues through the end of the year.

    Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center explained, “A recent study done by the University of Alberta, Canada revealed a substantial increase in the likelihood of anxiety in pregnant women and new mothers during the pandemic, and we wanted to help women here locally”.

    Kimberly Home provides services ranging from pregnancy and ultrasound testing to counseling/mentoring, material assistance, daycare and even transitional housing. Since 1983, they have helped thousands of women with unexpected or troubled pregnancies who would have otherwise had nowhere to turn.

    “Along with the other services we’re known for, we wanted to provide important supplies that a young mother and her baby would need, free of charge”, said Kerrie Fine, Kimberly Home’s Transitional Housing Director, in a recent phone interview.

    Kimberly Home is now collecting items such as: diapers, baby formula, food, baby clothes, furniture, as well as pregnancy and nursing supplies. For drop-off information please contact the Kimberly Home via Facebook at

    “Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard once said, ‘The arts and skills of woman, the inspiration and creation of which she is capable… are her beauty, just as she is the beauty of mankind’”, said Soltero. “Our community is empowering women through donations. So far we’ve received several hundred supplies, and distribution has already started. We’re happy to partner with a group like Kimberly Home whose purpose it is to nurture and care for young mothers and children.”
