Description

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

What's Needed To Complete

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

Whose Help Is Required

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

Special Requirements

None

How It Makes A Difference

By providing cold weather items often not available to unhoused 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 unhousedness, and you can be sure that you are providing important care items AND hope to people in need.

Where to Serve

From Home/Anywhere*

Instructions

1. Ask friends and family for donations or to purchase new cold weather items from your local department store. Items should include new and unused blankets, socks, hats, and scarves. Please be sure to remind people that all items should be new. 2. Once you are sure that you and your helpers have gathered enough items, mail your completed hygiene kits or contact pathvolunteers@epath.org to coordinate a time to drop off your kits at our headquarters. PATH 340 N. Madison Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90004 Visit our website and slect as area you want to support. Contact your selected location to schedule your donation.
