Help Clothe the Unhoused by Sorting Donations
ABOUT THE MIDNIGHT MISSION: Founded in 1914, The Midnight Mission offers paths to self-sufficiency to men, women and children who have lost direction. Our emergency services and 12-step recovery, family living, job training, education and workforce development programs offer a compassionate bridge to achieve and maintain healthy, productive lives.
VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: You will sort items (clothing and more) that have been donated to the Midnight Mission to ensure they are appropriate and of good quality. The Midnight Mission is fortunatee to receive a large number of in-kind donations, but they need your help preparing them for the people they serve.
IMPACT: These donations will be given to Midnight Mission's clients as well as local Skid Row residents. Access to clean clothing is essential to the overall well-being of a person and can be the key to opening doors to humanizing our unhoused community. These essential items help our unhoused community with the resources to look for employment and establish their self-worth.
