Help the Winter Shelter Program!

Bill Rosendahl

From Councilman Rosendahl:

Dear Friends,

As the holidays approach, the weather has grown colder and harsher, and those who are forced to live on the streets need our help.

During the last week, we opened the Emergency Winter Shelter Program, which will provide more than 200 beds for the homeless on the Westside thru mid-March. But the program – and those it serves – sorely needs your help.

Can you help by donating personal items and supplies for the shelters? The items, listed below, can be left at any of my offices between now and December 16.

Toiletries: razors, soap, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products; foot spray; deodorant; combs; hairbrushes; nail clippers; shower shoes.

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.

These items can be dropped off at either of my offices:

Westchester
7166 W Manchester Ave
Los Angeles CA 90045
310-569-8772
Hours: 9a-5p

West LA
1645 Corinth Ave, #201
Los Angeles, CA 90025
310-575-8461
Hours: 9a-5p

City Hall
Room 415, 200 N Spring Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012
213-473-7011

Thanking you in advance for demonstrating the 11th District is a community that cares. Together we can make this special season a little warmer for those in need.

Happy Holidays,

Bill
