Food, Clothing and Stuff

Our “Friends and Neighbors” who come to us every day for a shower and clean clothing, do not have access to hygiene products and toiletries unless we supply them. For this reason a constant and abundant supply of these are required at the Mission. Without your help, we must purchase these products. Consider sponsoring a hygiene drive among your friends and associates to assist us in meeting this need.

Please contact Tina Russek at (213) 629-1227 ext. 437 for questions or for more information.
