Assemble & Distribute Care Packages to the Homeless – August 26, 2017

Posted on August 6, 2017

Join us to assemble and hand out care packages to the homeless. First we’ll meet at 10:00 a.m. in the courtyard of the Central Library in Downtown San Diego to put together the packages and then we’ll walk around downtown/East Village to pass them out.

Event Details

  • Date: Saturday, August 26, 2017
  • Time: 10:00 AM
  • Location: Central Library (courtyard outside main entrance)
    330 Park Boulevard (Downtown in East Village between Park and 11th), San Diego, CA

Meet at Central Library’s courtyard

Please arrive with some items to add to the care packages (see below for a list), or you can bring 2-3 care packages already assembled. Maybe even host a donation collection at your work before the event so we have plenty of items to give out.

If you can’t make it, but are interested in donating any personal hygiene items for the care packages, check out our Amazon Wish List! The items will be delivered directly to us, so no need for drop off! Here’s the link:

If you have a wagon or something that would make transporting some of the goods easier on our walk, please bring it. Otherwise we’ll all just have to carry them. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen.
