Los Angeles City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl is kicking off his annual Winter Shelter Donation Drive benefiting the Westside homeless shelter program.
Starting today through December 20, Rosendahl’s three council offices will accept donations of travel size toiletries, clothing, and other necessities for the homeless.
The items will be distributed to those taking part in the Westside homeless shelter program. The donation drive this year follows a successful drive in 2011 (see Westside Shelter Donations Pour into District Offices).
“I was blown away last year by the generosity of my constituents,” said Rosendahl. “I was amazed at the quantity of the donations and impressed by the giving spirit that came from all parts of our district. I’m optimistic that we can repeat what happened in 2011 and provide some extra comfort to those who might do without during this holiday season.”
Here is a list of the items needed:
Toiletries: razors; soap (bar and shower gel); hand sanitzer; toothpaste; feminine hygiene products; foot spray; deodorant; combs; hairbrushes; nail clippers; shower shoes; bath towels.
Clothing: men’s underwear; women’s underwear; socks; t-shirts; coats; jackets; hats; scarves; gloves; men’s pants; women’s pants; shoes; adult diapers.
Personal items: backpacks; reading glasses.
Items for shelter: coffee; creamer; sugar; books; magazines; board games. In addition, cleaning items like brooms, mops, scrub pads, bleach, disenfectant, and trash bags are also needed.
These items can be dropped off at any of Rosendahl’s three council offices through December 20.
