Helping Mamas is a nonprofit that serves as the baby supply bank for Georgia. It has a four-person staff, and they’re working in shifts to remain open three days a week to get items to new and existing clients. “We serve over 30,000 individuals living in poverty each year,” says Mayheu. “We collect and distribute essential baby supplies and period products through partnerships with over 120 social service agencies, ministries, shelters and schools.” According to Mayheu, demand was higher than normal during COVID-19.
