DISTRIBUTION OF WARM CLOTHING TO HOMELESS CHILDREN

On September 22, 2017, volunteers with Reaching Out California delivered over 400 shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, and pairs of shoes to an elementary school in Los Angeles with a sizable homeless student population. The clothes and shoes were collected as part of a warm clothing drive coordinated with El Rodeo School, supplemented by a generous donation of shirts by Iverbe Day and Sports Camp in Los Angeles.


The warm clothes are going to be distributed to students who live in shelters, or in cars with their families, or in apartments crowded with multiple families. The winter clothing will be especially useful to children who spend their nights in unheated cars, as well as to elementary school students who are not permitted to be inside the local shelter between 6 AM and 6 PM and are outside and on the school playground during the often chilly hours when school is not in session.
