We go out to 2 locations in Orange County on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month and hand out clean, decent clothing. Most of the people we see are living on the street and are mostly men. Our process to distribute clothes is very organized with everyone lined up and volunteers ready to help them find the clothes and items they are in need of.
We would love to have you join us if you are open to faith based groups. We do pray with homeless that request it and use literature. You do not have to be a Christian to join but must be comfortable with our faith.

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.
