Because One Good Drive Deserves Another…
Good news everybody – our Thanksgiving Toy Drive a HUGE success!…
So, in recognition of the generosity of our clients and friends, we’re doubling down and doing a second holiday gift and clothing drive for an equally deserving cause…The Downtown Women’s Center of Los Angeles.
Founded in 1978, the Downtown Women’s Center is the only organization in Los Angeles exclusively dedicated to addressing the needs of women overcoming poverty and homelessness in Skid Row.
The Downtown’s Women’s Center’s Mission is simple: to provide permanent supportive housing and a safe and healthy community fostering dignity, respect, and personal stability, and to advocate ending homelessness for women.
Best of all, the women’s center has a fantastic donation policy and almost any gently used gift or item donation can be used to help their cause. Women’s Clothing and Cosmetics (Lotions, Soaps, Shampoo, Conditioner, etc.) are welcome to be donated for use by the residents.
However, the gifts the center accept don’t just end there!!!!
The center runs a a very cool and unique re-purposing program that teaches the its residents how to turn used clothes and other donations into handmade gifts and specialty items that are sold at the Women’s Center’s shop and through their website. Literally any item you can spare or donate will help the women’s center achieve it’s goal of ending homeless for the Women of skid row. Furthermore, your donations will empower these women with useful skills and entrepreneurial experience to further their own growth and development and end the cycle of poverty in their surroundings.
So, in short, the Downtown Women’s Center is extremely inspiring and we are thrilled to link up with them for the…wait for it…
