Stay-At-Home Kits for Homeless LA Families

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90004

Date: 4/7/2020 Spots Remaining: 1997

Description

Quick Overview: Want to help your neighbors experiencing homelessness during COVID-19? Assemble kits for our community's most vulnerable; individuals and families who have/are experiencing homelessness.

Mission: PATH's mission is to end homelessness for individuals, families, and communities. Since 1984, PATH has worked across the state of California to deliver life saving services. While the rest of California stays at home, many of our homeless neighbors don’t have anywhere to turn. PATH will remain on the front lines to help our most vulnerable through street outreach, case management, and food support. We need volunteers like YOU to help us by sending life-saving supplies to those most in need.

Impact: PATH serves over 20% of the homeless population in California, through nine interim housing shelters, 14 supportive housing communities, and dozens of outreach teams hitting the streets each day. All of these services will continue through the COVID-19 crisis. Many of those living on the streets are older, sick, or have underlying health issues. This is the group of people who are at the most risk of COVID-19. Now more than ever PATH's work is saving lives, with your support.

Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: When you express interest for this opportunity, we will follow up with how to purchase supplies through our Amazon CharityList or how to schedule a donation drop-off.

STAY-AT-HOME KITS FOR FAMILIES Help provide critically needed essential items to keep families safe and cared for, as they stay at home in a shelter, motel, or supportive housing site.  Family Kits can be assembled in reusable tote or grocery bags. 

Urgent Needs:

  • Diapers
  • Wipes
  • Soap & shampoo
  • Baby formula
  • Non-perishable snacks
  • At-home activities for kids of all ages (ex. books, craft kits, and art supplies) 

Requirements: Feel free to get creative with these kits! Handwritten notes boost morale and let our neighbors know they are not alone.
