Blanket and Jacket Donations for Los Angeles Community Action Network in Skid Row

While we mostly consider LA to be t-shirt weather, for those sleeping outside temperatures are about to drop. We are collecting jacket and blanket donations for the Los Angeles Community Action Network located in the heart of Skid Row.

Please drop off any donations to either shop, Glassell Park or Silver Lake.  If you would like to participate but do not have any blankets or jackets to spare you can also make a monetary donation directly to LA CAN to help them fund these items this season. 

We will be collecting jackets, linens, warm pants, and blankets through the winter.  

About LA CAN...

The mission of the Los Angeles Community Action Network (LA CAN) is to help people dealing with poverty create & discover opportunities, while serving as a vehicle to ensure we have voice, power & opinion in the decisions that are directly affecting us.

Organize and empower community residents to work collectively to change the relationships of power that affect our community.

LA CAN’s constituency consists of extremely low-income and homeless people, primarily those living in Downtown LA and South Central LA. LA CAN recruits organizational members and builds indigenous leadership within this constituency to promote human rights and address multiple forms of oppression faced by extremely low-income, predominately African-American and Latino, residents.

Plant Material and LA CAN have been working together this past year supporting their garden in Skid Row.  Earlier this year we donated plants, trees, and soil to their rooftop garden.  

We are accepting donations at the below locations from 10 am- 4 pm Tuesday - Sunday

Glassell Park - 3350 Eagle Rock Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90065

Silver Lake - 3024 La Paz Dr.  Los Angeles CA 90039
