HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

These kits help one woman experiencing homelessness to have dignity of a fresh shower, fresh change of clothes, food for energy and nourishment and supplies for a clean environment!

DESCRIPTION

The Downtown Women's Center is the only organization in Los Angeles focused exclusively on empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.

Although on-site volunteering has been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19, we are still in need of Help from Home Kits such as Snack Packs, Toiletry Kits, and Clean Home Kits. Making these kits is a great way to continue supporting us from afar as we expand our services to meet the community’s growing needs! Refer to the guidelines below for specific items to include in each kit. 

Please note the following:

  • If you’re assembling Snack Packs, you must schedule a drop-off by contacting  us at GroupVolunteerEvents@DowntownWomensCenter.org. *We will not accept unscheduled Snack Pack deliveries. 
  • If you’re assembling Toiletry Kits or Clean Home Kits, please click here to schedule a contactless donation drop-off. *We will not accept unscheduled deliveries. 
  • mask and gloves should be worn at all times while handling and packaging the kits.
  • We are able to accept pre-packaged and unused items, ONLY, due to the heightened vulnerability of our community to COVID-19.
