How You Can Help
Our “Friends and Neighbors” who come to us 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
Shelter. 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 Laura Scotvold-Lemp at (310) 518-3667 for
questions or for more information.

Serving meals every day means that we go through an
enormous amount of food. Food donations sometimes do
not even begin to make a dent in what we need.  Another
way you can help is talk to your friends at work or church
and put together a
food drive for the Mission.  Your the
suggestions on the page as a guide when collecting items
