Blanket Drive for Individuals Experiencing Homelessness

DURATION

1-2 hours

WHERE

@ Home (with drop-off at 340 N. Madison Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90004)!

WHEN

During the winter season.

WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

Just some family & friends to add to your donations (and perhaps a parent to help with mailing/delivery).

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

By providing cold weather items often not available to homeless individuals like blankets and hats, you will be providing items that can help people stay warm during the winter season. PATH will make sure items are delivered to men and women experiencing homelessness, and you can be sure that you are providing important care items AND hope to people in need.

DESCRIPTION

As the temperature gets colder and winter approaches, PATH wants to provide warmth to individuals experiencing homelessness.

You can help us meet the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors! We currently need help providing blankets and warm cold weather items. Grab your family and friends and see how many new, unused blankets you can collect for people who are unhoused. 


ITEMS NEEDED

1. A group of people to assist in collecting cold weather items.
