Welcome Home Project: Helping Formerly Homeless Angelenos

Thank you to all Emersonians who donated household items for Mayor Eric Garcetti’s “Welcome Home Project.”

The “Welcome Home Project” is an effort to provide basic household items to formerly homeless Angelenos, who are now moving into their first affordable housing and need basic items.  We were collecting laundry baskets, pillows, pillowcases, blankets, set of sheets, books (can be used), picture frames, can openers, pots/pans, pitchers, cups, towels/washcloths,  toothpaste/toothbrushes, shampoo/body soap, toilet paper, deodorant, comb/brush, bowls, plates, and utensils. 


Items Emersonians Donated

The collection took place on November 27 and December 4.

If you would like to take part in future efforts to help the homeless (and formerly homeless) folks of Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, please contact Terry Hassman-Paulin at tmhassman@aol.com or call her at 818-404-6941.
