Opportunity Description:
Access to basic hygiene essentials is more important than ever for our unhoused neighbors. Project Ropa is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps restore dignity, rekindle optimism and empower the lives of people experiencing homelessness by providing clean clothes, hygiene kits and drinking water in a safe, humane and dignified way. Our retrofitted van functioning as a walk-in closet carries hope as well as a full selection of high-quality men’s and women’s clothing, shoes and accessories all neatly displayed on racks and shelves similar to a retail environment. Our Mobile Hygiene Service operates weekly in Downtown LA and Echo Park.

We are looking for assistance with collecting new and gently used clothing donations to distribute to our unhoused neighbors.

Items we are seeking are:

Men’s jeans, shorts and cargo pants

Men’s sneakers, sandals and work boots

Men’s shirts, jackets and sweaters especially XXL+

Women’s jeans and shorts

Underwear and socks (new only)

Ball caps

Face masks

Tote bags and handbags
