Students from Hillview’s Children’s Corner preschool last winter help Loved Twice workers load a car with clothing donations for mothers in need. Another clothing drive takes place this month.

The annual Children’s Corner and Loved Twice clothing drive doesn’t just help the new mothers who receive the clothes – it also fosters a sense of empathy in the preschool-aged children who donate.

“I think that kids must get so much out of this – somebody that young to think about others,” said Lance Lawson, Loved Twice’s development and community relations director for Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.
