HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

By providing much needed hygiene and cold weather items to individuals experiencing homelessness,  you will be providing items that can help people stay safe, warm, and healthy. PATH's team will make sure the Jingle Bags are delivered to individuals and families -housed and unhoused- and you can be sure that you are providing important care items AND hope to people in need.

DESCRIPTION

PATH LA wants to spread some holiday cheer this winter! Help PATH give a holiday experience to our recently housed individuals. By providing a small gift, our clients can celebrate the holidays in their new home. Helping our clients turn four walls into a home can be crucial in making sure they do not fall back into homelessness.

You can help us assemble gift bags that will truly enhance the holiday season for the members in our community. Our Jingle Bags will help support our neighbors by providing them with essential items including cold weather items, new hygiene products, and festive treats/snacks. The relationships you help build with Jingle Bag donations can be vital in helping our neighbors feel at home and secure as they adjust to their new housing during this pandemic; helping them continue to inhabit and succeed in interim and long-term housing.

If you want to help this holiday season, we would love to work together to provide the materials necessary to our clients as we are anticipating a need of over 1,000 bags!
