Clothing Drive for Youth Experiencing Homelessness

Host a clothing drive for new and gently used masculine and feminine clothing and shoes. Provide youth with essential clothing and shoes, while perhaps doing a little Spring Cleaning at home You may purchase new clothing including socks and underwear from our Amazon wish list. If you would like to contribute gently used clothing, please adhere to these guidelines: You and those you live with must be symptom free for the past 7 days. Clothing must be laundered while wearing gloves and a mask and packaged in plastic bags (not cardboard or other boxes). Please label bags with the date the clothing was laundered and packaged and a description of the clothing (ex. jeans and t-shirts). If donating gently used shoes, please spray with Lysol or use disinfectant wipes. We are still not accepting used socks and underwear. For drop off directions contact Daniel Lee at [email protected]

Drop Off Instructions

While our building is located at 5850 Hollywood Blvd., donations are accepted through the back parking lot, which is accessible via the alley just south of the 76 gas station on at Bronson and Hollywood Blvd. You are welcome to pull into our lot and park in any space. Once you’re in the lot, ring the buzzer at the glass door atop the stairs. We accept the donations through the first floor so no need to bring them up the stairs with you.
