DOWNEY – A local nonprofit group is collecting donations as it works to deliver winter gear to the homeless population. Every fourth Sunday of the month, L.A. on Cloud 9 volunteers provide a hot meal at MacArthur Park in Los Angeles, where donated clothing, shoes, toys, and pet food/flea medication are distributed to more than 350 homeless and needy people and their pets.
On a weekly basis, L.A. on Cloud 9’s adult and youth volunteer group (Teen Challenge), visit different areas throughout Los Angeles, distributing food, clothing, pet food/supplies and hygienic products to the homeless.
The group is currently in need of winter clothing, including jackets, gloves, beanies, blankets and socks.
To make a donation, contact Grissel Chavez at (562) 544-0794 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is also information at laoncloud9.org and Facebook.com/laonc9 on how to volunteer.
