Create Hygiene Kits for Unhoused!

August 27th, 2020

Location: 4712 Admiralty Way, #1226 Marina del Rey CA 90066
Duration: Ongoing
First Day : Aug 27, 2020



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.

The need for hygiene essentials is greater now than ever which is why we are expanding our street outreach with the goal of serving 1,700 of our unhoused neighbors each week.

To do this we need your help creating hygiene kits to distribute. This can be done remotely by putting together items in a ziploc bag. Please note: Items for the hygiene kits will not be provided by us. We recommend reaching out to your network of friends and family to source the items. 

All items can be travel-size. 

Items to include in the kits are:


Essentials

Shampoo

Conditioner

Soap

Body lotion

Shaving cream

Razor


Nice to Have 

Deodorant

Q-Tips

Band-Aids

Hand sanitizer

Disinfecting wipes

Travel-size tissue pack

Toilet paper

Lip balm

Sunscreen

Dental floss

Hair bands

Toothpaste and toothbrush

Once you’ve put together kits email: donate@projectropa.org to schedule a contactless drop off or pickup. Hygiene kits can also be mailed to us at: Project Ropa, 4712 Admiralty Way, #1226, Marina del Rey, CA 90292.
