Under low banks of fluorescent lights, around long tables laden with infants’ outfits, office workers at Enterprise Holdings listen closely as Loved Twice founder Lisa Klein tells them why they are there.
“Today, you’re going to sort clothes for homeless babies in the Bay Area. You’re going to do a lot of oohing and aahing, and you’re going to be making a huge impact in the community,” Klein says. “We’re going to fill these boxes up. You’re going to make a new starter kit for a new baby, a baby who basically has nothing, a baby who might be homeless. The mom might be giving birth at the hospital, will take the baby and the box on a bus and go straight to a shelter.”
Thirteen years after her initial charitable response to a natural disaster, Klein knows she can look forward to many hands making light work of looking out for new mothers.
