The following is a list of our current gift-in-kind needs:

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. If you are interested in sponsoring a hygiene drive, please contact Kimberly Battaglia at (213) 629-1227, ext 329 for questions or more information.

Serving 3 meals a day, every day, means that we go through an enormous amount of food. Food donations do not even begin to make a dent in what we need to provide 1,260 meals a day. You can help. Talk to your friends at work or at church and put together a food drive for the Mission. Use the suggestions on this page as a guide when collecting items for your donation.
