After moving to California in the midst of the pandemic, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are continuing to give back to their new community. On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were photographed at a drive-through event supporting Los Angeles-based non-profit Baby2Baby. The duo were handing out school supplies, books, backpacks, clothing, food and more to children in need. Harry and Meghan were both clad in masks, distributing items through car windows.
“We were thrilled and overwhelmed at the support,” Baby2Baby co-president Norah Weinstein told People. “We believe that the fact that the Duchess is from Los Angeles was what prompted her to highlight L.A., where Baby2Baby is based. We felt particularly grateful that she was highlighting an American organization.”

Baby2Baby was proud to host a drive-through distribution at Knox Elementary in South LA as students across the country return to distance learning this week. Thank you to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex for joining our team to help us distribute school supplies, clothing, hygiene items, food and more to children who need these basic essentials more than ever during this unprecedented back to school season.
This is not the first time the couple have been seen volunteering for charity during the pandemic – back in April, they delivered meals to vulnerable citizens of Los Angeles as part of Project Angel Food.
