Thank you for caring about people experiencing homelessness here in Los Angeles. Your gifts will directly benefit the men, women, and children who need help most.
Wondering what to donate?
At Union Rescue Mission, we treat every “guest” or resident with all the respect a child of God deserves. We treat them the way we want to be treated ourselves. That means we never give someone an item of clothing or pair of shoes that we would not be willing to wear ourselves.
- We need quality clothing and shoes of all sizes for men, women, and children – including maternity clothing.
- Specialty sizes (extra large and tall) are greatly needed.
- Business attire for men and women (suits, shirts, ties, scarves, etc.) are greatly appreciated.
- Donations of coats, hats, and gloves are needed during the winter months.
We ask that all donations of used clothing be clean, of good quality, and ready to wear (no repairs needed). Please sort, box, and label all clothes according to gender (men, women, or children) and mark the box as “used.”
Donations of new clothing are always appreciated, especially in the following categories:
- Undergarments for men, women, and children.
- Socks and panty hose.
- Baby clothes.
Please sort, box, and label all clothes according to gender (men, women, or children) and mark the box as “new.”
Donations of baby items – such as cribs, strollers, high chairs – can mean so much to a family who has so little. We ask that all baby items be clean, safe, and in excellent condition.
Due to seriously limited space in our warehouse, donations of furniture are accepted according to immediate need. We ask that donated furniture be clean, in excellent condition, and ready to place in an apartment or home.
Items essential to setting up a home – such as pots and pans, lamps, bedspreads, etc. – are accepted according to immediate need. We ask that donated housewares be clean, in excellent condition, boxed, and labeled with contents clearly marked.
If you have items you would like to donate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or 213-673-4875.
We will let you know what items are needed and provide instructions on how to deliver or ship your donation to URM. We will gladly provide a receipt (acceptable for tax purposes) for your kind and generous donation.
