REMOTE - Create Laundry Kits

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Project Ropa

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 148 people are interested

Help create laundry kits for us to directly distribute to those in need in the Los Angeles area. This is a great activity for children to get involved with.

The majority of the people we serve can't afford to wash their clothing. Part of the barrier is the cost of laundry detergent.

You can help by creating laundry kits. In a bag (paper or other eco-friendly type is preferred) include the following items:

- A laundry detergent pod or individual dry pack
- Fabric softener sheets

Optional:

- A handwritten note or drawing which can be seasonal appropriate for an upcoming holiday
- Quarters for the laundry machine

All kits can be mailed to us at: Project Ropa, 2851 W 120th Street, Suite E #566, Hawthorne, CA 90250 or dropped off at our warehouse in Gardena, CA.

We accept donation drop offs at our warehouse on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am-3pm and on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 10am-1pm. We are closed on all major holidays. Our warehouse address is: 13970 Van Ness Avenue, Gardena, CA 90249.

If mailing please include a note with your full name and email address in the package.

Please note: We are unable to provide verification of remote volunteer work for community service hours. We can only do so for in-person volunteer work.

Project Ropa is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to reduce waste and restore dignity to those in need by providing clothing and hygiene essentials.

About Project Ropa

Mission Statement

The mission of Project Ropa is to reduce waste and restore dignity to those in need by providing clothing and hygiene essentials.

Description

An Overview: Who We Are

Project Ropa, is a Los Angeles-based non-profit and certified social enterprise, paving the way towards a more compassionate, sustainable world. At its core, Project Ropa is a mobile clothing closet delivering premium, hand-selected apparel and shoes to people in need. We work to give a second life to items originally destined for landfills. In doing so, Project Ropa empowers lives, providing individuals with hygiene essentials and high-quality clothing and shoes that can open doors to future opportunities.

Our Approach: The Power of Love

Project Ropa's approach to serving our clients is deeply rooted in the concept of the intrinsic value and unlimited potential of their lives. Instead of seeing people as problems to be solved, Project Ropa views each individual as a person with unique aspirations and contributions. Many of the individuals served by Project Ropa are working to secure employment, improve their health, and maintain stable housing. Project Ropa is there to support them at every step of their journey.

Each client is welcomed to shop from our mobile clothing closet and offered one-to-one service. Project Ropa's team members work diligently to help clients find clothing they'll be proud to wear - clean, stylish, and hand-picked. This level of personalized care may require time and attention, but it is where the real impact happens. It's care that restores hope, and the clients deeply appreciate it.
