Sorting, tagging and packing clothes for a Clothing the Homeless distribution.
Clothing the Homeless
Every Friday afternoon from 2:00 to 5:00 pm (except for the last Friday each month).
We need additional volunteers to help us sort, tag and pack clothes. We meet at our storage facility in Irvine where we store the donations. The clothing donations we receive need to be sorted, tagged and organized so we know what we have available. We then pack the storage boxes with the correct clothes by size and type so they are ready for the next distribution. Sorting and packing is one of the most important jobs we have at Clothing the Homeless, because without the awesome volounteers who perform this assignment, there would not be any distributions.
Come be a part of fun and join us to sort and pack.
About Clothing the Homeless
c/o Journey Christian Church, 4849 Alton Parkway., Irvine, CA 92604, US
Our goal is to meet the necessary needs of the homeless population with adequate clothing for the different seasons and elements of weather. We also want to provide decent, clean clothing to give these people a boost in their already low self esteem. This will help in scheduling and appearing at interviews if they look presentable. We believe with the amount of clothing that is thrown away every day there is no reason people are going without decent, basic clothing. Our goal is to distribute them to the people who are in need and not drop them off somewhere thinking it will get done.
We have been going into the city of Santa Ana for over 12 years now, and have recently started distributing in the city of Costa Mesa too.
We give bags and bags of clothing to the Salvation Army Emergency Shelter and Isaiah House (a shelter for women.) Plus WHW an organization that gives people business attire clothing for job interviews and jobs.
We provide clothing when requested for Skid Row homeless and other areas in Southern Calif. We have provided clothing to many American Indian Reservations.
In between are mobile distributions we are busy collecting, sorting, washing, and marking sizes on each article. We store all of our donations in a storage facility.
